The new cardigan continues, but there’s trouble. First I run into gauge problems, and then one of a designer’s worst nightmares. Read more.
We were watching AMC’s Turn a while ago, and commenting about how cool-yet-utilitarian main character Abe Woodull’s clearly hand-knit slouchy toque was. I searched online for patterns, found an interesting blog post and a discussion about spelling, but no patterns that looked exactly right.
Abe’s hat looked like it might be a bit itchy, but I thought it would be okay to be slightly less authentic in that regard, and got some super-cozy Woolfolk SNO to make this hat. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out!
It’s equally fashionable on men and women!
When I first unwrapped the package of LUFT that arrived by post last summer, I swooned. Literally.
And every stitch I made when working on this new design was a pleasure.
They named this oversized pullover ILT, which means “oxygen” in Danish. All the project details are here.
