FLET Pullover.




If you are thinking about knitting only one pullover for the winter season, might I suggest this one?

This pullover was in my queue for a bit over a year before I finally casted on for it. I also had the yarn in my stash waiting pretty much the same time. I don't know why it took me so long to actually start with this one, because it is perfect.

I loved knitting it although I do love wearing it even more. I used Drops Merino Extrafine for this one and it is just perfectly squishy and smooth and I really enjoyed using it, so much actually that I immediately casted on another project with it, this time in black. At the moment I'm knitting the Koto pullover which is also designed by olgajazzy, as is the Flet pullover.

PS. I wish I could try knitting with Woolfolk Får - the yarn that this pullover was originally designed for. I've only heard rave reviews for it...

Salut Chéri! Beret Pattern.

Here is the pattern for the berets I've knitted. The name for the beret is from the t-shirt I was wearing when I took the project photos of the first beret for Ravelry. I thought the name suited the beret, since it's quite classical take on the hat that has become the icon of everything French. Happy knitting!

(By Far) The Easiest Way to K4Tog.

I have published earlier a post on an easy way to k4tog - knit 4 stitches together - which is an essential stitch in my Cloud mitten pattern. As you might already know it is a bit challenging especially with 2.5 mm bamboo needles that not only have sharp tips but are bendy and especially prone to snapping. Stubborn as I am, I wasn't going to give up and change the design just to make it easier to knit. So I came up with the idea of using a tiny crochet hook to pull the working stitch through other three. 
I was planning to use this same method when knitting the second pair of Cloud mittens, but alas, I couldn't find the hook anywhere. I seem to have misplaced it and I just can't remember where I put it... And as you know I don't crochet often so the second smallest hook I had was size 3.5 mm which didn't work for this purpose for obvious reasons. 
So I was back to square one trying to figure out how to do the k4tog in an easy way when I got the idea of reversing t…
