floozy

September 27, 2018









I'm thrilled with my Floozy! There is just so much to love about her! She was really fun to make and is lovely to wear. The pattern on the yoke is called the mosaic technique and uses slipped stitches to mimic the more complicated stranded knitting. The pattern also used a stitch I had not used before but there was a helpful video tutorial that explained it. Possibly the best thing about mosaic knitting is there is only one color used on each row! It's meant to be worn as a cardigan but I prefer the buttons at the back. The pattern is expertly written and I highly recommend it. The yarn, Rowan Finest, was dreamy to knit with. It's very soft and because it's so soft I'm going to take special care of it as I think it will have a tendency to pill (as per comments from other Ravelers), however I had zero problems with it while knitting and the fabric is beautiful. I made a few small modifications that I added to my project page.
