Alpaca & Mohair

11/08/2017

Knitted in Isager Strik Alpaca 1 held together with the same brand Silk Mohair. Such a light cardigan!

Pattern

Pattern by me – a simple raglan cardigan from bottom-up.

New for me

nothing really

something else to say abt this knit

After this knit i have switched my raglan knits to top-bottom. This turned out perfect! but i just don’t like the feel of a made to order knit. They are difficult – in my opinion – to get perfect.

my True Friend

Knitted in Isager Highland Wool and Knitlob’s lair Ilmatar. Wool meets silk. A beautiful pattern, easy to follow! Thou i decided to give the front panel some texture with very 4th row as a purl.

After a few months from bind-off and a lot of usage.. i accidentally put the sweater in a wash and now it’s a dish cloth/doll sweater. Oh well. This was a fun knit and the sweater had that relaxed light feel to it – that i might just knit this one again someday. Maybe add some extra with moss-stitch 🙂

something else to say abt this knit

As mentioned – a very easy knit, easy-to-follow pattern and i think my yarn choices were perfect – until it met 40c water in 1200 spin #rofl
