Off the Needles!

I've been busy this week finishing off my sweater! I've used Louisa Harding Amitola in the colour Dijon and I'm thrilled with how it's turned out! The pattern is from Amitelle, which is a collection of hand knitting projects using two of Louisa's newest yarns Amitola and Orielle. Both are a DK weight and are interchangeable as they knit up to the same tension.

I was a little apprehensive casting on in this self-striping yarn, what concerned me was making sure that the stripes on the back corresponded with the front. The back, front and sleeves are knitted separately and then joined at the yoke so I wanted to make sure my colours all matched up at the point I joined my pieces together. I needn't have worried they worked out just fine! I made sure when I cast on each piece that I started with the same colour, this did mean starting from the centre of the ball for the front, it certainly pays though to think ahead and I have to say I'm really pleased with the results!

Amitola is just one of the knitting yarns that you can buy with a 10% saving when you purchase 5 or more balls. To see more check out our Knitting a Sweater? offer
