June 2012

This year I decided it is time for me to make my own winter wear instead of purchasing some cheap sweaters.  So blue sweater is based on the patterns for the brown and pink sweater.  It is made from Lions Brand Home Time super chunky yarn ( 100% Arcylic)on size 19 needles.  It IS VERY HEAVY will be great as my out door sweater this winter.

This is Sirdar Big Softie yarn and the pattern is Sirdars.  I dont like the "non" sleeves but the collar Ii love  also although the yarn is super chunky its a lot lighter than the Lions Brand its a blend of merino yarn.

This is based on a pattern in Vogue Knitting Magazine.  Its was a trellis pattern but I decided to use measurements and design elements and straight knitting.  It is a 3/4 sleeve which with the Sirdar Yarn was great but not as nice with Lions Brand.
