I love love love my Lopi sweaters—to date, I have knit 6 and I’m so excited for our Knit-along that I’m casting on #7. Choosing which pattern to knit has been a difficult process, I want them ALL! Here is my short list:
This sweater coat from Ístex Lopi No 36. I got to see and try on this beauty when the collection first launched and immediately added it to my queue. The green color way is absolutely perfect. I am slightly concerned that it might be more project then I am up for at this time…
This is the sweetest cardigan or pullover and it has been in my queue for ages—there are 244 of these listed as projects on Ravelry. As you start scrolling though it’s easy to see why; this is one that seems to suit absolutely everyone.
A pullover from Kate’s seminal book Yokes, and another pattern I’ve kept in my to-knit list for forever. Kate’s work is so impeccable, and this would be a fun way to play with all the left over yarns from my other Lopi sweaters.
This pattern was published in the Making No. 4/Lines. This pattern is a little different from all of the other mentioned—it’s top down and I don’t usually care for that construction method, but Mary Jane is just brilliant and this sweater is so wonderfully simple that I think it will knit up in double time and become an instant wardrobe staple. Very tempting.
Glaswegian by me (free; sizes 34.5–60.25″)
Is that weird to want to knit my own pattern? I love the design but if I’m being very honest with my self, these are not my colors. I’d love to knit this again in a palette of neutrals.
Which should I choose!? Help me decide, leave a comment telling me which project you think I should cast on next. Or if you are planning to join us in our KAL let us know what pattern you’re planning to cast on.
