You know that feeling- you see a sweater, and you have to have it. That’s how I felt when I saw Fold & Turn, which looked so comfy and cozy and perfect for the chilly weather ahead that I bought it within 5 minutes of it popping up in my Ravelry feed. I spent ages trying to figure out what yarn (and not just brand, but should it be tweed? tonal? solid? marled?) and colour, and in the end settled for a colour I’m completely craving right now- a rich, dark forest green.
The Yarn is Knit Picks Swish Worsted in ‘Jade’. It’s my first time using this yarn, so if anyone has used it and can report back on how it holds up over time, I’d love to hear it! I have been knitting and knitting and knitting for ages- this is a big knit, although it doesn’t look it, all squished up in the photos below. Even though it is taking a while, I love how simple and zen the knitting is! Beginner knitters who know how to knit and purl and use dpns- this is totally within your grasp. Experienced knitters- this is a great project to chip away at while in a dark movie theatre or watching films with subtitles. As long as you have patience, and like stockinette!
Fortunately, I really do like stockinette. So I’m happy plugging away at this:
The construction is clever- it’s basically a gigantic rectangle that is then partially seamed and then the sleeves are knitted on in the round. I’m almost done the body, so I’m really looking forward to the seaming and then the sleeves! I can’t wait to wear this.
