Little Acorns

April 22, 2021






My last post on knitting with cotton yarn was very popular and I hope I encouraged you to try a cotton yarn this summer. My most recent finished knit uses one of the yarns I mentioned, Softyak DK, in a medium olive called Canopy. Acorns Jumper is a real cutie and was a test knit for Kat Sejud-Green. The acorns made me smile and were easy to make, and they came out just like real little acorns! It's like when a few cables going this way and that way make a perfect owl. So fun. Because the yarn has a bit of yak, it makes a warmer sweater for our climate so I'll pack it away for several months and bring it out this fall. Before I do I'm going to rip out the sleeve and body hem ribbing, add a inch or two of pattern, then make the ribbing again. It's a perfect fit now, but he's sure to grow during the summer. The pattern is well-written and is beginner friendly. It is knit top down and requires no fancy stitches; if you can knit and purl, you can make this darling sweater.

    1. Thank you Rosemary. He does have quite a collection! I'm sure one day soon he'll not want to wear them and instead go for the sports and super hero sweatshirts, so I'm making the most of it while I can.

  2. Hi Kristen,
    I just purchased this pattern. I have a 3rd cousin who would look awesome in this. I will have to make a big size as he is growing since we have been in lockdown in Canada, I haven't seen him in a while.
    Take care and stay healthy!

    1. Hi Leslie. Hope you are doing well and spring will soon bring vaccines and good times! It's for a boy so make sure you read my notes on my Rav page. I changed up the sleeves to make them less blousey. xo Kristen
