Ohh my goodness, it is finally here! The pattern for my Knitting is the New Sexy Signature sweater!
I've worked very hard to create this pattern. First designing it to be exactly how I wanted it to be. Then knitting it and creating the pattern in my size. And then grading it to other sizes and writing it into a pattern. Not to mention the photographs, to which I had help from my friend.
But here it finally is and I feel so happy to be able to share it with you!
My idea behind this sweater was to create a statement garment that would say it out loud: Knitting Is the New Sexy! This is not however one of those not-so-stylish statement T-shirts. This is a stylish sweater that that stands out with it's style and it's message. You can wear it proudly and say, yes, I made it myself and I look sexy in it!
I have created my sweater form Nordic Yarn's Eco cashmere DK yarn. It's 50 % recycled cashmere and 50 % virgin cashmere. It's very soft and I love how it feels on my skin and neck. It's warm and comfortable. It does a little bit of pilling, but the pilling is easy to remove so it doesn't matter. This yarn is very luxurious and I recommend it to you. You might want to buy a 10 pack of the main colour as they always have huge sales in their web shop and bundles give you the cheapest price per ball. To the text you need just one ball of accent colour. I chose colors Inari and Alta to my sweater. You can also use any other DK yarn, just check the gauge.
As always, the pattern is written in English and in Finnish, and you can find it here:
