It has been AGES since I have done one of these! And this is not because I haven stopped adding projects to the queue – I have just fallen behind.
The yarn suggested is 100% alpaca, though, which I wouldn’t recommend as the ribbing needs a bit of bounce for elasticity which alpaca just doesn’t have. Think if you picked an alpaca/wool or silk/wool you would get the right combo of drape and elasticity.
The Artemisia Sweater by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark below is being offered as a workshop package on Crafty, which includes the yarn and step by step video instruction on how to knit the jumper. Think this is perfect for someone who has reached the level of wanting to do a more advanced (but still simple) garment, but wants tutorial back-up. A great idea Mercedes!
I desperately need new wool socks, so these pretty babies are on my to-do list – Pomatomus by Cookie A. These are also FREE!
