I LOVE this sweater.
I love the colour. I love the yarn. I love the pattern. I love the fit. I love every. single. thing. about it.
The pattern is Lemongrass by Joji Locatelli and it is a complete joy to knit. It’s a beautifully written pattern and I can’t recommend it enough. I had no project fatigue with this at all. I’d happily knit it again tomorrow!
That cable! Looks complex…is easy enough to knit in front of the TV!
I couldn’t find buttons to match this yarn. It’s not quite blue and not quite purple. So I stitched up the buttonholes and the sides together. Problem solved.
The yarn is Malabrigo Merino Worsted in the colourway Azul Bolita and the pictures do not do it justice at all. It’s deeply saturated and gently variegated. It’s soft and squishy and has beautiful drape. It’s a truly joyous yarn.
Be warned…it leaks colour like a mad thing whilst you’re knitting it. I had blue hands every night I knitted this.
But it’s worth it.
If only we weren’t heading into summer. I can’t wait for cooler weather so I can wear this all the time.
