It is a summer knit really but isn't that how us knitters work?
Make for summer in the winter and winter in the summer. I was certainly knitting earflap hats for the kids on the beach in August!
The pattern was from Drops. It doesn't have a name yet. It is called 100-32. Not very inspiring but it it was just what I was looking for.
I threw away an aged purple Monsoon cardigan this summer and needed a replacement. I wear a purple cardigian with so many of my dresses. Until I threw the old one away I didn't realise how much I missed it.
The sleeves are bracelet length which is useful for work but a pain for putting a coat on but it will be Summer so no worries there.
The yarn is Louisa Harding Jesse 100% Cotton. Fantastic quality and really improved my knitting tension. I think cotton knits better on metal straights than on my circular bamboo ones - but that might be just me. The yardage is small on these skeins - 89 metres for 50g so I used 8 skeins. It was in a sale but for me it was a princely sum but necessary to make this replacement garment.
Two Skeins left over, mmm what will I make?
What do you think? I am thinking the top of a dress for one of my little girls. Jo xxxx
