Knitted Christmas Presents #3
A little late, here comes the third and last post about my knitted Christmas presents: Three hats and two little sweaters. Here goes...
A hat for my brother made of Rowan Felted Tweed. I added some stripes with yarn from my stash. The pattern is made up as I went along.
My boyfriend saw me knitting it and asked for one too, so I made another one with thicker stripes and some other small mods.
A hat for my sister-in-law. The pattern is from a Danish book by Lena Blidell called 'Hotte huer'. (Ravelry link here) It is made with one strand of wool and one strand of some angora blend.
This sweater is for my little niece. I used the pattern from the Climbing Vines Pullover in Interweave Knits, Winter 2008. The Yarn is Lana Grossa Cool Wool 2000.
This looked really good on her, when she tried it on.
The last sweater is this cardigan made for my cousin's daughter. It was a small experiment with yarn from stash (DROPS Karisma) I'm not all satisfied but it looked fine when she tried it on. In my opinion there are some minor errors but on the other hand you have to make these in order to be an experienced knitter, right? It is knit in the round and steeked.
