Colour work for Christmas

Saffran baby cardigan sweater docksjo design

I made this new little cardigan this week. I’m supposed to work on something else, a bit secret that you will hear more about soon I hope. If you have been reading here for a while you probably know that I have been writing a lot about wanting to make Christmas sweaters. It have been a lot of talk but not much else until this week. My brain sort of works on a lot of designs and keep testing different pattern and styles and then something tips over and I just have to make it now in this exact way. This happened Tuesday or maybe Monday. In the morning when I got up I just had to knit some colour work but not that colour work cardigan I already had on the needles. I wanted a new one in the yellow yarn I had bought for a toddler Christmas sweater the previous week so I looked trough my patterns and realised that I got the wrong one in the yarn store, but no sad faces here, I started sketching and calculating and this is the result it all came together so easily as if I already had the design in the back of my head. The yarn used it Sandnes Alpakka Ull and I used 3 balls of the yellow and 2 of the white, the buttons are the same wooden buttons as you’ve seen many times before (my favourites) and they come from the best button place around here

This design is mine and will if all goes well, be released in December, I’m holding my thumbs, there is a lot going on at the moment and I’m working like mad to make it happen. A little crazy, quite exhausting but very fun and I really hope that you will like it too.

    Såå underbar liten kofta! Ser fram emot mönster på den. Läste på sidan om dig. Grönt är underbart och i kombination med orange blir det fantastiskt :). Den insikten kom från ingenstans när jag fick mitt första barn. Blev så full i skratt när jag läste der du skrev. Skönt att det drabbar fler 🙂
