    Ooh gorgeous! Love this post, you have inspired me to use up some random skeins of worsted and DK I have hanging around. Is the swatch hat pattern included in the Strange Brew sweater pattern?

    Thank you so much for this week’s posts. So inspirational. I wonder if you could answer a question..when knitting colourwork in the round, do you just continue each new row with knit stitches or do you pick up the stitch below to address the jog?

      We just start the next row with a regular knit stitch, and don’t worry about the jog.

        Thank you! That’s really useful to know as your knitting always looks perfect.

    Hi! Just wondering what program you use to create your color charts, they look great!
