My latest release on Ravelry is the Bloom Sweater!
The pattern uses a highly textured lace stitch for the yoke, and the body/sleeves have multiple options to choose between. When I knit, I enjoy long stretches of mindless stockinette. I also love to watch a detailed stitch pattern slowly reveal itself on my needles. This pattern lets me have it both ways!
I love wearing my long swingy one over my skinnies like a dress, the drape of Knit Picks Gloss makes it so enjoyable to wear!
The tee one will be perfect this summer paired with my white jeans.
Also, though both photos look wonderfully summery, both times it was near freezing and way too cold to be out in only a sweater.
This pattern is sized in six sizes, to cover from a 28 inch bust up to 50 inches. The body/sleeves are written out line by line, and the yoke is charted AND written out for your convenience.
The navy yarn shown is Knit Pick Gloss Fingering. Gloss is an affordable merino/silk blend that feels good and drapes beautifully. It is perfect for the a-line body option.
The light purple yarn shown is Purl Soho Linen Quill. Linen Quill is an interesting rustic blend of wool, alpaca, and linen. It has a lot of spring and give to it, and is really well suited to the shaped body option.
other great yarn options include
Knit Picks Stroll Sock, which has good stitch definition, is hard wearing, and has a rainbow of colors to choose from!
Malabrigo Lace. Technically, this is a laceweight, but due to its fluffy single-ply structure, it will knit to gauge with a surprising amount of body!
