Attempt at designing sweater for the first time


So my friend sent me this picture in the beginning of winter..

and I instantly fell in love with it!

I tried to find a pattern that looks similar, but to no avail. Berroco, Lion Brand, Ravelry, all failed.

So I finally decided to design my first sweater. It’s going to look very similar to that, except it might not become a jacket, unless I master steeking (!). Does anyone recommend a good steeking tutorial video?

Since it’s my firest design, I’m going to try to destash as well.

Yarn: RH SS Purple and Light Grey (I’m starting with 1 skein each)

Needle: US 8 (5mm)

Other materials: 4+ stitch markers, cable needle.


One thought on “Attempt at designing sweater for the first time

  1. First, let me say that I’m a huge fan of your posts. You’re on my List Of Ravelry Favorites, and I often share your stuff with my knitting friends.

    I am writing everyone on my Favorites List with a couple of questions. If you can answer them for me, it would be a HUGE HUGE HUGE favor. Really HUGE.

    Thing is, I am writing a piece on Ravelry for my college magazine. Topic is WHY Ravelry is such a huge success. I need opinions from fellow Ravelers like you to back up this claim I am making.

    These are the questions:

    1) Why did you choose to join Ravelry?

    2) How did you learn about Ravelry?

    3) What does Ravelry give you that other sites don’t?

    4) Absolutely anything else you’d like to share with me on this subject.

    My quandary is this: I love the site and come here almost every week to look for knitting tips and ideas. (I haven’t joined yet, as I am too shy to talk of my own work…)

    I want to understand why others do the same. Each person must have his or her own reason and I am very curious to understand this trend.

    Once I write the piece, I intend to send it across to Bob the dog. Maybe, he will post it on the site to encourage newcomers or even use it for other promotion purposes.

    Thank you in advance

    Keep writing, keep sharing, keep creating
    Warmest regards
