It was the golden hour when I took pics to show you this latest WIP; that moment when you just want to bask in the glow.
Recently I showed you the yarn I’m using for a new free pattern project, using Scheepjes Namaste, and this is how it’s working up.
It’s going to be an oversized, chunky, open stitched cardigan which will envelop you and feel like a warm hug. It will be one size, but I’ll also add information to make it smaller if you desire.
But in the meantime, I also have a sneaky reveal for you! I made matching hats for my daughter and myself, each using one skein of Namaste!
It is so deliciously warm and soft. Not so warm that you start to feel the prickles of sweat, it’s just perfect for when it’s a bit too chilly to go out uncovered, and the open shell stitches keep it breathable. Plus, as Namaste is a wool/acrylic blend, it’s always going to be lovely and soft!
I’ve written two sets of instructions for this (kid and adult sizes), and I’ll share those in the next week or so, so stay tuned for that, AND for the cardigan reveal!
In the meantime, get your hands on the yarn! It’s available at all the usual fabulous Scheepjes retailers, along with my LYS Caro’s Atelier* here in Almere, Deramores* and of course Wool Warehouse*.
Just finishing off my second triangle and found that the row numbers are a bit off – somehow the end of row 35 has jumped into row 36 throwing the numbers after that out by 1.
I checked the UK original and US versions and these are ok so it’s just the UK extended pattern that this has happened in.
Hope you can make sense of this and get the pattern changed.
Hi Mary, thanks for the heads up, it’s now fixed.
