Apologies about missing the last two Wednesday Pattern Shares! Bad stomach bugs and busy weeks have kept me away, but thankfully I’m on the ball now to share my favourite pattern for this week.
I actually came across this pattern whilst I was looking for the summer knit for the last Wednesday Pattern Share and I’ve fallen completely in love with it!
The pattern is by one of my favourite designers, Bristol Ivy and it’s a lovely jumper. Bristol is a knitwear designer and teacher, and if you’re not familiar with her designs then have a look at her Ravelry page.
I pretty much love all of her designs, and I’m sure this won’t be the only time I share something she has designed. I love her use of texture and form and the way that her patterns are modern and yet also really classic!
I love the boxy shape of the jumper and the clever stripes, and the really interesting patterning through the back and around the arms.
I’m totally going to be knitting this through the winter and I think it would look great with jeans, trousers or even a skirt!
The pattern is available as a download from interweave.com and even better at the moment it’s on sale at $4.55 (appox. £3.44) SOLD!
