A childhood in Scandinavia and one deeply believes in the exclusive beauty of intricate knitted patterns. After a few stranded knits, (this or that), I realised that there is an essential beauty in a simple minimal knit too. Thank you Felicia 🙂
About to go skiing last winter, I panicked when I couldn’t find any warm pullover for my little man. Luckily he’s tiny and I think I knitted this in a few days. I found the pattern in La Maison Victor jan-feb 2016, it’s called ‘Joseph’. Only change: I prefer using a circular needle, as it’s much quicker knitting in the round rather than front + back separately. Plus no tedious assembly of parts. Oh and I made raglan sleeves. I’m in a raglany phase. I also made a lower neck, as wool on tender necks is not so pleasant.
Travelling back from the skiing holiday. That’s a Swiss train, most have a ‘family’ compartment. Nice for families, but also nice for commuters who can find quiet areas in the rest of the train.
And now the big question, what will my new winter knit be… something busy and stranded like these pullovers by Essentiel – Antwerp?
Or rather something sober, stylish and minimal like Ankers Trøje?
Or back to stranded but sober in its complexity, like the Öland sweater?
Help! So many lovely sweaters….
