Norah’s Knits: More Ideas for Marmot

P1020726

While we concentrated on smaller items in the Marmot booklet, this yarn is so soft and wonderful, I’ve been finding myself dreaming of knitting a cozy sweater to live in this winter.

Cirrus and  Voyage both have gauges similar to Marmot.  Searching through the Berroco pattern library I found these 4 modern basic sweaters that would work great, even though they’ll look a bit different in Marmot’s soft faux fur.

Shown on our beautiful size 14/16 model, Loret from Booklet #323, Cirrus.  On the right Germania is a similar style, with an added ruffle on the bottom and it’s a free pattern.

Knit from cuff to center, Freddo is another free pattern. The body was originally knit in Voyage, and since Marmot is the same gauge it’s an easy substitution. You can trim it in Boboli, like the original or go for a monochrome trim with something like Vintage.

My last pick, Ristretto, is my favorite. All the colors of Marmot go great with my mostly black wardrobe, so I am going to have a lot of trouble deciding.  I’ve long said that raisin is my favorite color, though, and the Jasper (3733) colorway fits that description.

Would you wear an all Marmot sweater?

    Yes, definitely! I might even break down and knit it for myself. I, too, like Ristretto, just a little longer.

  2. Ristretto in Marmot would be over-the-top cuddly, but I think Loret would work well too.

    • Yes, I like the simplicity of Loret for this yarn and, like cirrus, the edges won’t curve in very much.

    • Sorry about the broken link. I’ve fixed it now. Loret is available in Berroco booklet #323, in printed form only. We started selling single pattern PDFs this Fall, but this pattern is from a privious year.
