I’ve been looking at candidates for this beautiful vintage yarn that I got recently….
(About 1000 grams of bulky yarn)
I thought of something with cables but the yarn is too thick and I’ve never done cables. Plus the fabric would be too stiff.
Then I was eyeing In Stillness by Alicia Plummer, but that would require a more fluid wool.
I think I finally found a good candidate, though. The Super Birthday Sweater, done with some mods in the bottom part introducing some texture (gathered simple cables from a stitch pattern I found).
(The modified version as done by zialaura)
(The original pattern – sorry I haven’t got the link to ravelry at hand)
Here are some late night, awful light, unblocked swatches:
What do you think?
