Let's Twist Again

April 16, 2022

I'm back again after only one day because I don't want you to miss the discounted price of this new pattern! 

The pattern: The Twist Pullover from Kiddiwinks Knits includes a tee version and is a companion pattern to the Twist Cardigan. The unisex pattern is sized 3 months to 8-9 years. I love the fit and there is plenty of room in the chest and upper arms for all the movement of an active child. The back is raised with short rows. There are just enough cables to make the sweater interesting but not overwhelming on a little dude. This will be a school/play sweater for my grandson but I think the pattern is sophisticated enough to make a handsome Christmas sweater. The pattern is knit top with hidden increases inside the cables; they beef up as they travel down the yoke. The pattern is well written and easy to knit, plus has a great discount now through Easter Sunday. You can purchase it here.

The yarn: Rowan Softyak DK, that wonderful cotton blend that this knitter particularly loves for children's sweaters. Besides being soft, it also wears well. Even after a year of wearing and washing, my grandson's Softyak sweaters are still presentable enough to be passed along after he's outgrown them.  All Rowan yarns ship free  though Monday, April 18. You can purchase Rowan Softyak DK here. I think you'll love it as much as I do.  Go to yesterday's post to read about my favorite cotton yarns.

My sweater's particulars: See my Ravelry page here. The color is called Lawn and I used 4 1/2 skeins. I used US size 6 needles and size 4 for the ribbing. I made a 6/7 for my big 4 year old and think it has plenty of growing room for next fall. I've set aside the remainder of the yarn to lengthen sleeves or hem if necessary come fall.

My newest yarn acquisition above, Creative Linen in Teal. It's the most gorgeous blue green, not as bright in real life as my monitor. I'll be making Cool by Kim Hargreaves. 

All Rowan yarns ship free until Monday, April 18

I had time to set my Easter table in between all the practice egg hunts we've had this weekend. Carter requested numerous dry runs in anticipation of the Grand Hunt tomorrow. He is bouncing with excitement. So cute. If you celebrate Easter, I hope it's grand!
