Apparently I’m on a sweater kick. I mean, I always appreciate a good sweater. But, I feel like I’ve got a bit of a bug under my skin lately about knitting sweaters. (Or maybe it’s just that I’ve started looking at Pinterest more- so many pretty projects, so little time.)
I’m thinking that my next sweater should be for me. And I think it should be more modern and girlier than my usual fare of plain-ol, top down pullovers.
And I think it should use this lovely lilac yarn I’ve had stashed away for almost a year. (KnitPicks’ Wool of the Andes Superwash in Haze Heather)My first instinct is to go simple and easy to really show off the color. Add in an interesting, modern silhouette, and I’m in love!
Worsted Boxy by Joji LocatelliBut, oof, that’s a lot of stockinette… like, a lot…
Maybe I want to keep it simple, but do a more classic, relaxed silhouette. And maybe add a little textural interest, just enough to make it fun.
Mailin by Isabell KraemerBut, then we’re back in kind-of-old-fashioned-and-not-terribly-flattering country. (Although I do really like this pattern. I’ll have to keep it in mind for a later date.)
Maybe I need something a little fiddlier- something with a ton of teeny tiny cables?
Little Wave by Gudrun JohnstonMaybe… but it’s not as much of a “wow” project as I was looking for…
Oooh, look at this one! An interesting, modern shape, a perfect canvas for super-cool cables, and I think it would look pretty killer in purple!
Stranger Cardigan by michiyoI think we might have a winner!
What do you think? Which would you pick?
