Although Angie has not been knitting for very long, she has been inspired enough by the friends she has made at our Thursday Knit Nights that she knits herself fabulous sweaters like this!
Joji Locatelli’s Trevor was designed as part of her FAVORITE THINGS collection. It is a basic pullover with flare and stripes to be knit with fingering has a gauge of 21.5 stitches and 34 rows = 4 inches in stockinette using 3.5 mm (US 4) needles or as required to get gauge. 2.75 mm (US 2) needles are used for the ribbing.
Joji’s newest pattern is her Pebble Tunic which is 20% off all weekend! Pebble is a basic tunic sweater with a relaxed fit and droopy pockets on the front. It’s the perfect garment for lounging and relaxing. It’s worked seamlessly from the top down, with dropped shoulders. It is designed to be knit using a DK weight yarn and 3.75 mm (US 5) and 4.0 mm (US 6) needles or as required to get gauge with the bigger needles. Gauge is 20.5 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches in stockinette. Before you measure your gauge, take the time to wash and block your swatch in the same way that you will wash and block your sweater so that you will have a sweater that fits.
WIP's and FO's
This was my Nightshift WIP Monday morning. I am using the The Fibre Company Arranmore Light in Kinnego Bay from my leftover yarn stash as my main colour. For my contrast colours, I am using Schoppel Wolle Starke 6 in 2 colours - one as the contrast colour in rows 1-20 and one as the contrast colour in rows 21-40.
I am almost finished section nine of the recipe but now I am thinking I need to start a second skein of my main colour to make a larger Nightshift! Even with blocking my DK weight shawl will have a big enough wingspan to wear.
Karen has been working on her Nightshift by Andrea Mowry too. She isn’t sure she likes it because it is colourful but all of us at Knit Night love it! She is using a mix of Schoppel Wolle Edition 3, Kelbourne Woolens Andorra, Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light and Cascade 220 Sport!
