'Lucy' A Balloon Sleeved Sweater
This is a free pattern with purchase of the accompanying wool. Please only select 'buy now' if you have also added the relevant wool to your knitting basket.
'Lucy' is a cheeky, fashionable, fun and a rather lovely sweater.
Lucy is knitted using a strand of Rowan Kidsilk Haze and a strand of Sesia Nordica worked together. Do not be alarmed, once you have cast on the two stitches automatically 'stick' together as one stitch. This gives the most glorious appearance and feel to your sweater. Our sample is made using Kidsilk Haze Nectar and Nordica Antique Rose.
We have suggested some rather lovely yarn combinations:
Kidsilk Haze with Nordica
Cream with Cosmos Purity
Nectar with Antique Rose
Hurricane with Artichoke
Steel with Scree
Pearl with Mushroom
Bark with Branches
Anthracite with Slate
A pair of 5 mm and 6 mm needles.
2 stitch holders
Sewing up needle.
Tension: Approximately 15 sts and 20 rows to 10 cm. If you are a loose knitter please use smaller needles, if a tight knitter then use a size larger.
*As we all knit to a slightly different tension, yarn amounts will vary slightly from one knitter to the next. It's always prudent to take extra yarn if you know you have a habit of running out
Lucy is a fitted sweater. If you prefer a more relaxed fit, please knit a bigger size.
