Some time ago, I started a design experiment for myself. It's going to be a cabled sweater but I don't know yet how it's exactly gonna look when it's finished.
How does the experiment work? Well, the design process, as well as the sweater, are quite unconventional. I thought I want to design it kind of "on-the-go". I'll just start and think about how the different parts (body, sleeves, collar) should look. I just had a rough idea about the shape.
I decided to use Drops Karisma yarn in beige brown. It is superwash treated, soft virgin wool with a meterage of about 100m/50g (109yards).
The body part is one long square that was grafted together at the end when it was finished.
Now I’m adding the ribbing for the lower edge.
I decided to knit a diagonal ribbing.
So, this is where I am right now with this project. Next thing, after the ribbing is finshed, will be the sleeves. I'm not quite sure how they are going to look like yet. :)
working on this for some time now and that’s what makes this one so
special to me :) Figuring out how to make the parts and designing them
as I see the progress - it is a wonderful experience of designing!
Sometimes the project lies around for some time and then one morning you have this great idea!
I’m a little bit torn all the time, but that’s also what excites me about it. So, it’s kind of a bad romance
we got there ;)
It’s definately worth the experience of this designing experiment! :)
Right now, I am a little busy knitting some birthday and Christmas presents, so this project is a little bit on hold. Also, unfortunately, I can't share those projects that I am making now with you here on the blog because then it wouldn't be a surprise anymore... So, that's why I'm not posting that much at the moment. But I will definately show you every one of them!! :) (you just have to be patient... ;) )
Well, I hope you like this project that I showed you today and maybe you want to try something like this for yourself some time...
Have a great week everyone!!
