In the same spirit as ’embossed alu’ (see previous post) but more oversized: Atropa
I used Wollmeise Pure this time. That Tollkirsche is amazing. It changes color during he day. In morning light, shade, evening light, electric light. It really glows. Wow, love it. I combined it with ‘All inclusive’ for the stripes and a rest of the 13 Al from ’embossed alu’ with some ‘Natur’.
A new favorite pullover for any occasion. It is casual and chique at the same time. I am so happy with it.
Atropa: an oversized boxi-type pullover with fitted lace sleeves. A little bit of stripes, a little bit of lace. Worked top down seamlessly in one piece. Two finishes are proposed for bottom hem, neck and cuff: I-cord or a small folded hem.
Included in the pattern are:
a lot of illustrated tips on
- increases used,
- short rows,
- schematics for every section
And in a separate pdf
– richly illustrated photo tutorial on working an estonian braid (I wrote a separate blog post on how to make one) and a small folded hem with knit or sewn bind off.
