Show and tell: colorwork sweaters!

Time for another round of show and tell, this time featuring colorwork projects!

Here’s Aubrey’s “Halibut,” a striking pullover knit with Kelbourne Woolens Cricket and Isager Silk Mohair held together throughout. This was her second sweater and her very first colorwork project! Pattern by Caitlin Hunter.

Liz came in with two incredible colorwork projects to share – the first is Midori Hirose’s “Paul Klee Sweater,” knit with Brooklyn Tweed Loft and Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift.

“Taquile” is another of Liz’s creations, a cozy pattern from Marianne Isager’s A Knitting Life: Out into the World. She knit it with Isager Alpaca 3, a soft and lofty chainette.

Anne recently taught a class on Isabell Kraemer’s “Nasrin” sweater, and Katherine was the first in class to finish. Like Anne, Katherine knit hers with Kelbourne Woolens Camper, adding the contrast edging at the neck, cuffs, and hem. If this lovely sweater piques your interest, check out our blog post showing color combinations!

Thanks to Aubrey, Liz, and Katherine for sharing your projects with us. If you want some guidance and camaraderie as you knit a colorwork sweater of your own, check out our class page for two new classes coming up in August!
