I’m so excited that the new issue of Knitty has gone live, and my latest pattern is in it! Everyone, please meet Velvet Morning:
It’s knit up in Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label, with Midnight as the base colour, and three contrasting colours: Sand, Mallard, and Atlantic. Tanis graciously test knit it for me in a totally different colourway, and you should check out her photos here.
I LOVE this sweater. it’s such an easy thing to wear- pants, long sleeved tee, Velvet Morning. Done.
It was ridiculously hot when we did this photos, I was getting cranky from the heat (I was also very early days pregnant, I may not have been feeling awesome, either- I was so tired all the time in the first trimester). So I’m not as smiley as I usually am! But trust me- I wear this sweater all the time, and I’m so glad that it still fits now that I’m pregnant. That’s the best part when all the growth is up front- open, drape-y cardigans still fit like a dream.
The sweater is meant to be oversized, with lots of positive ease, and lots of cozy warmth. The sweater knits up surprisingly quickly in the aran weight, and for
those that aren’t crazy about stranded colourwork, I bet this would look
amazing in two colours- one base colour and one contrasting colour. I
hope someone does it so I can check it out!
