PATTERN DETAILS

Its finally summer outside and so it is about time for a light and colourful sweater! The sweater has been worked with Soft Silk from BC Garn. The 100% bourette silk is a bit crisp and feels wonderfully soft and light on the skin. However, the yarn grows quite a bit with blocking. So you will want to wash your swatch and carefully note before and after gauges before casting on. The sweater uses approximately 1100-1700 m of main colour, depending on size being knit and less than 35 m of each of the five contrasting colours. There are twelve sizes, starting with size 32 and going up to size 54. The Bellis P. sweater is worked in the contiguous method in one piece from the top down. This makes it very easy to try the garment on as you go and to add or subtract rounds whenever necessary to create a perfect fit. The pattern also gives some help in finding the appropriate size to knit. As always the Appendix contains illustrated tutorials for all techniques used.

Knitting for me is all about experimenting, trying new things, re-discovering old stuff and mixing everything together. I also like a challenge when I knit. I enjoy immensely to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it is impossible to do. - Then I find a way to do it. It is just wonderful that I can write down my ideas at home, upload them here on Craftsy and instantly share them with other knitters all around the world. I so love the internet!
