HOW TO DESIGN A GREAT SWEATER

Today I have a special episode for you! In this knitting tutorial I will show you how to knit a sweater at a beginner’s level. This is a cuff-to-cuff design which will make the Cuddle Sweater an easy to knit piece.

I will explain the overall construction and how you can create your very own design: You can choose the length and width of the cuffs as well the overall fit of the sweater.

We will also look into seaming and crocheting the neck opening. A classic crewneck or a turtleneck – it’s all up to you!

 

 

I hope I could inspire you to be creative with this sweater design! We are offering this as a kit on SKEINO in 2 packs: XS-L and XL-XXL. You can also add a single skein to your order to be extra creative!

As always please leave a comment here or on Youtube!

 

Love,

Bjorn

INTRODUCING THE DONNA VEST

In this episode I will introduce our Donna Vest. This wonderful knitting kit is using our Donna Yarn in super bulky weight. Although I’m not actually knitting in the video I will show you how the project is constructed as well as mention a few things you should know before knitting the Donna Vest.

You can purchase the kit and download the free pattern here:

What do you think about this new design? I can see this to be worn over a blouse or a shirt. The super bulky texture is a great contrast. Do you agree? Please let me know in the comments.

HOW TO KNIT IN THE ROUND

A customer asked me if I could teach her how to knit in the round and I told her that I would make a video about it. If you are also unsure or curious about the technique this video is for you. Knitting in the round is really quite simple if you take care of a few basics. Let me walk you through them in the video.

 

 

I hope you could take something away from this short class. If you have questions or comments please let me know in the comments or right on Youtube.

Love,

ANNETTE SHAWL

The Annette Shawl is based on our Bauhaus Mitered Shawl. In this video I will show you which yarn is being used, the construction as well as a few design options. As always with SKEINO the pattern is free. You can download it by scrolling down to the “Download Pattern” section on the product page.

Please let me know what you think about this design in the comments or on Youtube. This approach is a little less modern than our Bauhaus Mitered Shawl. Which one do you like best?

Love,
