Winter Knitty is out and I am in it with a sweater pattern, available for free! Whoop!
Elkko is a top-down sweater with stripes and lace-details in the yoke. It is worked in a gorgeous aran-weight wool from Kettle Yarn Co. and features short rows, compound raglan increases and waist shaping to make this easy-to-wear sweater a great fit.
I mean, just look at how much fun it is to wear this!
If all photo shoots involved swings, I wouldn’t be so reluctant to take part. There were, in fact, several photo shoots for this sweater, including one featuring tiny ponies.
And then there were some alpacas…
In other news, the Klee Collection Knit Along is underway. Please join us in the Ravelry group and take part to win some beautiful yarny prizes. Although I have started the KAL in December, at the height of present-knitting season, I think it is really suited to the selfish knitter and so it runs through until February 2016.
