Sweater knitting is a perfect way to take favorite knitting techniques and use them at a grand scale. If you love fair isle knitting like we do, you may wish to join our KAL in September as we knit Jennifer Steingass’ “Vintersol” sweater.
The Vintersol sweater is described this way by the designer: ‘This sweater is a top down hybrid. It starts with a provisional cast on with waste yarn using a simple long tail cast on. Several rounds are worked with the waste yarn and then the main color is joined. The stranded yoke is worked and the neckline is finished… then the body and sleeves are worked from the provisional cast on edge. You can try it on as you go: the yoke, body, and sleeve lengths are all adjustable, as well as the neckline circumference, if desired. This sweater is worked seamlessly and in the round.’
Check out the pattern and the 400+ projects posted HERE on Ravelry and get inspired! Maybe this will be the sweater you wear all winter!
We’ll kick off our Knit Along with an evening Cast-On Party on September 4th. Meet the knitter who made the sample in the shop and workshop the pattern as we cast on and/or swatch for our sweaters! We will offer help determining what size sweater to make, help with gauge and needle choices, and swatching and color selection advice.
