  • The new amirisu magazine, issue 18, comes out today, and this is my contribution, Koushi โ–ซ๏ธโ–ซ๏ธโ–ซ๏ธโ–ซ๏ธ This sweater was initially inspired by gingham, and the way threads in two colours are woven to make a third. Except instead of colours, I used textures: smooth stockinette and a really textured eyelet, with double moss stitch as the in-between. And instead of a tiny all-over pattern, I made the blocks as big as they could be. A quarter of the sweater, a whole sleeve... Itโ€™s interesting to knit something asymmetrical, and itโ€™s even nicer if you get mid-round fatigue and get a bit bored of working the same stitch for too long ๐Ÿ˜›

@amirisushop itโ€™s been a huge pleasure and you've outdone yourselves with this beautiful issue once again, thank you.

  • So many yarn scraps and yet somehow not nearly all of my yarn scraps.

  • I made a coat! ๐ŸŽ‰ Just in time for spring! ๐Ÿ˜‚ 
I bought the fabric from someone on marktplaats, the lining and the outer together. The colour and the fabric itself are both a little lighter than Iโ€™d have picked out in a shop but I like it, and it was convenient, cheap, and second hand โœŒ๏ธ The pattern is Burda 116 11/2015. Itโ€™s a womenโ€™s tall pattern which I am not, so I shortened the upper body, and also skipped the waistband though I did add this depth back to the lower body to keep it knee length. I modified the vent to a normal style because it would have been way too high as drafted without the waistband. I also added not one, not two, but four inner pockets, because the outer pockets are quite shallow (could have seen that coming but I skipped them on my toile ๐Ÿ˜‘) and a woman needs to be able to carry her belongings and seditious writings of course. .

  • No best nine for me as it would probably just look like a screenshot of my feed, that's how little I posted ๐Ÿ™ˆ No pretty pile of knits either, I feel like I just didn't knit that much ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ A couple of things for me, a few more as gifts, and the rest is currently spread around the globe. So I had a dig in my box of swatches instead, and pulled out all the swatches from my designs this year. It's a nice way to keep a record ๐Ÿ’• See you next year! ๐Ÿ‘‹
