    Hello! I’m starting a marshland sweater and I am wondering why the collar portion is added at the end. Why not start with the ribbing of the collar ?

      Hi Karolina – picking up from the cast on gives the neckline a little extra structure, instead of having the weight of the sweater hang from the cast on it will hang from the ‘seam’ created by picking up sts.

    I am choosing yarn now for this sweater. Making it in a class at my knit shop Woolworks with instructor Tara. My first color work sweater. I ordered your book and look forward to trying several patterns. I enjoyed your photos from Iceland I have been there twice. Thanks for making this pattern so versatile Pat from Baltimore, Maryland USA

    So pretty! The process was obviously worth it!

    I’ve stood on that plain, and I have to say the first photo and how the colourwork connects with the landscape is just such exceptional work! Love everything about this.

    WOWZERS! It was worth the work–at least for me! I was going to make the Mountain Mist, but I think I’m changing my mind 🤔

    You have beautiful knitting patterns! Is it possible to show us the reverse side of a yoke? What is the secret to not pull the carry yarn too tight? Is this such a simple question?

      Hi Donna – Check out our Instagram we sometimes have shots of the inside of our work there (I’ll try to post one in the next couple of days for sure). To keep it loose I try to use a slightly longer cable than usual, and I make sure to spread out my stitches on the right hand needle every few sts. Keep those floats long and loose!
