Who’s ready for some sweater knitting?! Our newest pattern Embers is here!
Embers is exactly what I need right now — basic, top–down construction, simple colourwork, and tons of fun palette possibilities.
We may have mentioned it before (like here and here), but we really love a hat swatch. It’s such a great way to see if your yarn and colour combination is the right one for your sweater. I knit up a few hats to test out my colour combos before embarking on the sweater. Get the Embers hat pattern here.
The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers and Jamieson & Smith
I think the most fun part of this sweater was choosing a palette for the yoke. I had a rainbow of amazing Soka’pii from The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers and tried a few combinations before I hit upon my favourite. To make the colourwork really POP, I held the contrast colour yarn doubled.
Emily chose the colours for the kiddie size from her wild stash of Jamieson & Smith… after agonizing for days and swatching up a storm! I love that pop of brightest red against the grey!
