Ocean Breeze Sweater

The ocean breeze sweater is knit from the bottom up, with the arms cast on separately and sewn into the armhole in the end. Its “oversize” style makes it a very comfortable daily wear that matches with jeans as well as tighter skirts, which will underline its width. Keep in mind when choosing your yarn to opt for light material that will drape gently around the body. The pattern is very simple and accessible even for beginning knitters as it offers a variety of options regarding length, neckline and finishing techniques. The yarn chosen for the model (size S) is a combination of Retrosaria Rosa Pomar Mondim sock yarn and Gepard Garn Kid Silk.

Ocean breeze sweateren strikkes nedenfra og op, med armene kørt separat og syet i armhullet til sidst. Dens “overdimensionerede” stil gør det til en meget behagelig daglig slid, der matcher med Jeans såvel som strammere nederdele, som vil understrege dens bredde. Husk, når du vælger dit garn for at vælge let materiale, der vil drapes forsigtigt rundt om kroppen. Mønsteret er meget enkelt og tilgængeligt, selv for begyndende strikkere, da det tilbyder en række muligheder med hensyn til længde, halsudskæring og monteringstekniker. Garnet brugt i modellet er Retrosaria Rosa Pomar Mondim kombineret med Gepard Garn Kid Silk

Der Ocean Breeze Pullover wird von unten nach oben gestrickt, wobei die Arme separat angeschlagen werden und am Ende in das Armloch eingenäht werden. Sein “Oversize”-Stil macht ihn zu einer sehr bequemen Alltagskleidung, die sowohl zu Jeans als auch zu engeren Röcken passt, was seine Weite unterstreicht. Denken Sie bei der Wahl der Wolle daran, ein leichtes Material zu bevorzugen, das verhindert dass der Pullover durch seinen Umfang zu schwer ausfällt. Das Muster ist sehr einfach und auch für AnfängerInnen zugänglich, da es eine Vielzahl von Möglichkeiten hinsichtlich Länge, Ausschnitt und Fertigstellungstechniken bietet. Das Modell ist mit zwei Fäden kombiniert gestrickt, Mondim von Retrosaria Rosa Pomar zusammen mit Kid Silk von Gepard Garn.

Le pullover “Ocean breeze” est tricoté du bas vers le haut, avec les bras tricotés séparément et cousus dans l’emmanchure à la fin. Son style “oversize” en fait un vêtement quotidien très confortable, qui s’accorde aussi bien avec les jeans qu’avec des jupes plus serrées, ce qui soulignera sa largeur. Lorsque vous choisissez votre fil, gardez à l’esprit d’opter pour un fil léger qui enveloppera doucement le corps sans alourdir le pullover. Ce patron est très simple et accessible même pour des tricoteuses débutantes, car il offre de nombreuses options concernant la longueur et les techniques de finition. Le modèle est tricoté en un fil de Mondim de Retrosaria Rosa Pomar combiné avec le Kid Silk de Gepard Garn.

Victoria baby blanket

The years 2019 and 2020 have turned out to be major baby boom years in these regions and as a serial knitter, a whole new baby blanket era!

I’ve always been an avid defendor of handmade presents, and made it a number one priority to celebrate the arrival of a new baby in my circle of friends or family with a handknit item. This obsession turned out to be quite time-consuming when I expanded this to entire baby blankets… Whereas a small sweater of even miniature dress will take you a few hours, sure, a baby blanket, is a whole different story.

The idea for the Victoria blanket (named after the baby who is now cuddled up in it) was born when I had had my share of Chevron baby blankets (still a number one hit and absolute go-to pattern) and thought I would need to come up with something new. I love the idea of brightness and happyness in knits for babies and children, combined with utter softness and of course, practicality.

Rainbow colours

To get the right colour combination, I chose a mix between Cashmerino from Lang Yarns and Baby Cashmerino from Debbie Bliss, but you might find your perfect colour shades in one of them only. The Cashmerino blend is incredibly soft, making not only the knitting process quitte a pleasure, but also – most importantly – the result is a very soft blanket to cuddle in. Last but not least, it is machine washable, an absolute MUST for me me when it comes to baby presents. You really don’t want to give a new mother or father the poisoned gift of hand washed clothing or accessories. It might be beautiful, but not what you need when you won’t get a good night’s rest for the next 2 to 5 years (yes, experience talking here!)

Now to the tricky part: the intarsia technique. Yes, it is extremely time-consuming and it gives you about 100 ends to weave in, but – the result is just perfect! Other arguments to convince you: it allows you to limit the usage of each yarn and also avoids there being any loops on the backside, where the small baby fingers might get stuck .

Convinced? Head over to the free pattern over here!

Sparkles Cable Top

Sparkles Cable Top

The Sparkles sleeveless cable top is worked in one piece from the bottom up until the armhole shaping, at which point the front and back are knit separately. The cable binding is worked first, then sewn together to form the hemline that the top is then cast onto. The yarn chosen for the model (size S) is a combination of Lana Grossa Silkhair Lusso (a mohair with some shimmer in it) and Lana Grossa Cashmere 16 fine, which gives it a more glamorous look. You can of course opt for any other combination, or a single thread of any DK or light worsted yarn (cat. 3) that fits the indicated gauge.

Sparkles Cable top strikkes i et stykke fra bunden op til ærmegab, hvor den deles i for- og bagstykke og fortsættes separat (hvert stykke færdigstrikkes hver for sig). Bunden med snoning er strikket først, syet sammen så den danner en bund som fortsættes rundt ved at maskerne samles op langs den øverste kant. Garnet brugt i modellen (størrelse S) er en kombination af en tråd Lana Grossa Cashmere 16 fine og en tråd Lana Grossa Silkhair Lusso som har lidt glimmer i, og som giver toppen den festelige stil. Du kan godt bruge et andet garn (en tråd eller to forskellige tråde) så længe de passer til strikkefastheden.

Das ärmellose Oberteil Sparkles Cable Top wird von unten nach oben in einem Stück bis zum Armloch gestrickt. Danach werden Vorder- und Rückenteil separat in Hin- und Rückreihen gestrickt. Zu allererst wird die Zopfmusterblende gearbeitet und dann zusammengenäht. Anschließend werden die Maschen von der Seite der Zopfmusterblende aufgenommen. Das Modell auf dem Foto ist in Größe S mit einer Garnkombination aus Lana Grossa Silkhair Lusso (ein schimmerndes Mohairgarn) und Lana Grossa Cashmere 16 fine gestrickt. Beide Garne geben diesem Oberteil einen zusätzlichen Hauch Glamour. Sie können natürlich Ihrer Fantasie freien Lauf lassen und Ihre Garne kombinieren oder auch nur ein einzelnes Garn in DK oder light worsted (Wollkategorie 3 / 8-fach Wolle) verwenden, solange Sie die Maschenprobe erzielen.

Le top sans manches Sparkles Cable Top est tricoté d’une pièce en partant du bas jusqu’aux emmanchures. Puis on sépare le dos et le devant pour les tricoter séparément. La bordure torsadée est tricotée en première, puis assemblée par une couture pour former l’ourlet au-dessus duquel on monte les mailles du top. Le fil choisi pour le pull photographié (en taille S) est un mélange de Lana Grossa Silkhair Lusso (un mohair qui scintille un peu) et de Lana Grossa Cashmere 16 fine, qui lui donne un côté un peu plus glamour. Vous pourrez bien sûr faire vos propres mélanges de fils, ou utiliser un seul fil de fil moyen type DK ou light worsted yarn (cat. 3) vous permettant d’avoir le bon échantillon.

El Sparkles Cable Top se teje de una pieza de abajo hacia arriba hasta la sisa, desde ese punto la parte delantera y la trasera se tejen por separado. Primero se teje la franja de trenzas de la cintura que se une con una costura y de ella se levantan los puntos para el cuerpo. La lana usada en el modelo (talla S) es una combinación de Lana Grossa Silkhair Lusso (un mohair con algo de brillo) y Lana Grossa Cashmere 16 fine, que da un look glamuroso. Por supuesto puedes escoger cualquier otra combinación, o una sola hebra de grosor DK o light worsted (cat. 3) siempre que dé la muestra.

Roxy sweater

Roxy Sweater

The Roxy sweater is a very comfortable knitted pullover with an elegant V-neck on the backside which goes perfectly with a simple pair of jeans for a casual but special day-to-day wear. It is knit in one piece, top down, with raglan technique and big balloon sleeves. Use soft worsted yarn (cat.4), for example baby llama wool or an alpaca blend. The front piece is shorter than the back and reaches right above the hip line, but feel free to try it on as you knit to get the best fit for your body and the length you desire.

Roxy blusen er en komfortabel pullover med elegant V-halskant på bagsiden, som passer perfekt til simple jeans som en pæn dagligdagskombination. Den er strikket i ét stykke, oppefra med raglan og rigtig store ballonærmer i et blødt og tykt garn ligesom Baby Llama garnet jeg fandt hos Juniper Moon Farm. Forstykket er kortere end bagstykket og strikkes så langt nedad som passer bedst for dig.

Der ”Roxy sweater” ist ein komfortabler Pullover mit elegantem V-Ausschnitt. Als Alltagsoutfit mit dem gewissen Etwas, sieht er einfach perfekt zu Jeans aus. Er wird in einem Stück gestrickt, von oben nach unten, mit Raglanärmeln und sehr weiten Ballon-Ärmeln. Ideal strickt es sich in einem weichen, dicken Garn, wie zum Beispiel Baby Lama oder Alpaka. Die Vorderseite ist kürzer als die Rückseite und die Länge kann je nach Wunsch angepasst werden.

Vous aurez besoin d’un fil doux type worsted (cat.4), par exemple de la laine de bébé lama ou un mélange alpaca. Le devant du pull est plus court que le dos et se pose juste au-dessus de la ligne de hanches, mais libre à vous de l’essayer sur vous-même pendant que vous tricotez pour l’adapter à vos mesures et votre longueur souhaitée.

The Roxy sweater

I finally made it! My very first knitting pattern is online and what a loooong road it has been…

Ok, so I guess I started into this project, as usual, slightly overoptimistic without a clue as to how many mountains I’d have to surmount to get it done. First, there was the actual pattern writing, then the search for test knitters, the editing phase and now that it’s all done… I find it hard to believe that it took me about 6 months to go through the steps!

But here we are, and with the help of superkind and superefficient knitting design editor Maggie from Midnight Purl, as well as a few kind spirits that helped me in the translations, the pattern is now available on my Ravelry site in English, Danish, German and French.

It is knit top down in worsted yarn, which makes it actually quite a quick knit. Once you’ve made it through the raglan increases, it’s a breeze and a perfect TVknit, which is always a winner for me. My first knit in the picture above is made with baby alpacca wool from Juniper Moon, and my second try was made with Malou light from Lang Yarns, which was also super nice and soft to knit, so I’d definitely recommend both.

How do you eat an elephant?

How do you eat an elephant?

You might know this phrase, which I heard for the first time a year or so ago, while listening to one of the many audiobooks in my list, destined to make me a more organized, a happier me.

The answer to the question? One bite at a time.

This thought has been with me now for a few months, since I first started really diving into the project of writing my own knitting patterns. I’ve been a knitter for all my life, learned to knit when I was probably about 8, knit my first sweater shortly after, and my first really challenging norwegian patterned sweater a few years later. There have been on and off periods in life, where, just as with reading or anything else that isn’t absolutely necessary for you to get through the day.

As your children grow older, as your get more settled in your job, and as your life seems to gain some sort of semblance of control, you also get a little wiser. Or maybe, just get actually the time to sit down, have a coffee, and let your thoughts wander. (We’re talking about a 10-minute time frame here, don’t think I’ve got more than that before anyone comes jumping into the scene with some crucial question or need, or before having to drive someone somewhere, check up on homework, get on with laundry, … )

You start thinking more about the “what’s next?” And that is a really good thing, at least, if you allow your mind to wander.

What my wandering mind told me, or made me realise, was that the things that make me really happy are crazy huge projects, making up patterns, putting some fixed idea that popped up during the night down on paper, scribbling, writing, and getting all pumped up about the idea of what the imagined sweater or accessory might look like. And the thing is, just as with writing, reading, listening to music, or any other creative activity, once you start, you just can’t stop. You set off an avalanche of more ideas, more projects.

For all these years, I’ve been shoving these ideas back in place, because there really just wasn’t any time or energy for it, and what the hell would I do next? I wasn’t a wonder-knitter, I didn’t know all the world’s patterns and techniques, I was just me. And this is where the elephant comes into play.

So I decided to go with the gut feeling, and to start doing one of the things I love, knitting, creating, imaging, being a bit crazy and illusory, and in the end, enjoying myself tremendously in the process. Setting up this place here is one of the tiny bites to get that elephant down. Having one dedicated notebook with my first pattern and test knitting it with real, good quality wool is another bite. Then doing the whole thing again, the third bite.

Will I manage to eat the entire elephant? No clue. Does it matter? Probably not. Am I having fun? Oh yes!

So, please join me on my very slow and steady snail-paced journey, who knows, maybe you’ll discover a little something for yourself.
