The sweater parade continues! I wasn't joking when I said I planned to bombard you with woollies. Like I mentioned previously, balancing between knitting posts and sewing posts is something I haven't been able to get a handle on. I'd really like to have my knitting slate clear before June, so bear with me. Two more after today and I'm down to socks... and a shawl... But, I'll get some sewing in there soon. :-D
This sweater was knit from the Arvingen pattern by Pia Herno. It's a poncho-like sweater with an abundance of positive ease. Mine is knit using Rowan Polar (60% wool, 30% alpaca, 10% acrylic), and it's delightfully squishy and soft.
Yesterday, the weather turned cool, and I was able to wear my Arvingen as part of my Me Made May line-up. This is the type of garment that is incredibly easy to wear... even if it does make one look somewhat like a flying squirrel. (HA.)
Similar to my last project, this was a quick and uncomplicated knit. The shape of the sweater is created through a series of increases alongside the center seams. The sleeves are a spin on a classic raglan. This is sweater knitting 101, in a very "not your granny's knitting" kind of way.
This is a "one size fits most" pattern. I'm wearing it here with approximately 18 inches of ease through the hip, for reference. I think that it would be easy to modify, but I didn't attempt to do so on this project.
That's all folks! Tune in next week when Bullwinkle and I teach Boris and Natasha to knit. :-D
