Kinu love

a new sweater went off my needles a few weeks ago

tadaaaaa!!!



i bought this yarn at the raveler meeting in cologne this year..
i simply couldn't resist, when i saw all those beautiful little cones....
there was no special plan for this, so i went with blue and sand
(i know, i know,....not a brave color choice!)

spent some time with swatching...(Rililie! you can take my word for it, sometimes i do it!!!)
different needles, different needle sizes, single stranded,
doubled,....
and then this sweater came to my mind
simple shaping (subtle waist shaping), a wide rounded neckline,
simple (rather raw) edgings and... some stripes (how extra- ordinary!!!!...hahaha!)

i so loooove my new sweater!
...i did a second in woolen yarn, to see how the pattern works
with a less drapey yarn, and what can i say, it turned out great

love this one too ....;)


the only change was to add length to the sleeves
aaaand the stripe sequence is a little different,
other than that - the same sweater (how cool is that?)

the pattern will be ready to test the next days

...a few places in the test knitting group are available...
any volunteers out there in size L or XXL???


hope you all have good days,

isa m.

  1. Hello! I am a Japanese knitter who is big fan of your patterns.Also I'm so in love with this sweater! The name of "Kinu love" is named because the yarn contains silk,right?("Kinu" means silk in Japanese) If I have a chance to test it I really love to.

  5. Dear Isabell,

    der Pulli sieht so toll aus. So selbstverständlich. So natürlich. So bequem. So schlicht, so stimmig.
    Dieser Teststrick würde mich wirklich reizen.

  11. Oh yes, I'm interested in testing your new pattern! I'm finishing a Grande Favorito with a mohair + silk yarn, it is so fluffy and comfy, perfect for the wet season coming... Anyway, I'm a huge fan and I hope you're still looking for test knitters!
