WIP-Wednesday: Lacy Back Pullover
I've started a new project. It's a pullover with a really nice lace pattern in the back.
The pattern is from the Filati Magazine and and has the great name # 43 Pullover. You can find the Ravelry pattern page here. But you can also find an english version on gracewang's project page! Just scroll a little down in her project notes.
This pullover had immediatly drawn my attention the first time I saw it. But I wa sunsure what yarn to use and when to knit it. And so it ended up in my queue so I don't forget about this lovely knit (as if I would ;) ).
Altough the pattern calls for a bamboo yarn as this pullover is intended to be a spring/summer garment.
But I thought it would also make a very nice fall since I am not wearing that much pullovers when it's getting warmer. I'm more of a cardigan girl ;)
And so I chose Drops Karisma. I also found this great color called petrol cerise which really caught my eye!
The bottom of the back has a slight curve that is shaped through short rows. This is another nice feature if you ask me! ;)
I like knitting short rows and they make this design even more interesting in my opinion.
And so far, I am really loving the petrol cerise color! It's not that monotone like in normal solid colors. That's really nice for a change :)
I'm excited to move on to the front!
Have a great week!
