As soon as I stumbled onto this pattern on Stefanie’s blog, I knew it would be my next knitting project! Not only do I love the stripes, but I loved the simplicity of the pattern as well. I eagerly ordered my yarn from KnitPicks and waited for it arrive. Since I don’t own anything with the classic red and white stripes, those are the colors I chose to make my sweater. The pattern was well-written and easy to follow, so knitting it up was a breeze. The only thing I might change is that the yarn is bit fuzzier than I would like, but a quick brush with the lint roller usually cleans all that right off. I love the nautical vibe of this sweater and it’s perfect to wear on those days that are sunny, but there’s still a bit of breeze!
I’ve been knitting less than before and I’m not working on anything at the moment, which is so unusual for me! I find it more difficult to knit when it’s warmer outside because you do get a little overheated with a knitting project on your lap!
Tell me: Are there any other knitters out there? What do you knit during the warmer months?
