Last week I finished the Weekender sweater by Andrea Mowry.
I have had it for a long time in my Ravelry library, but when I saw how my friend Daria has made it with Holst Garn, I loved the idea and decided to try it.
I chose Holst Garn colours Rococo and CHestnut . I held the two colours together and used about 2.5 balls of each colour (had to buy 6 balls in total). I used the recommended needles, I don’t remember what my gauge was, but I think it was pretty close. The sweater is knit in stockinette and in the end you turn it inside out to get the reverse stockinette look and then knit the sleeves.
I really love how it turned out. It’s very easy pattern. With that yarn I now have a lightweight sweater, which is very comfortable and I really don’t want to take it off. I am even thinking of making another one with another colour combo. Like blue/gray, pink/purple…so many options of this gorgeous yarn:)

I have this in my Ravelry library as well. I hope to get to it sometime. My first priority this year is reducing my stash and I don’t have enough of anything to make a sweater.
Yeah, I get it! I saw on instagram a lady who makes sweaters of scraps 😀 https://www.instagram.com/p/BfsV5qbnpnU/ For some inspiration.
You look so lovely in your new sweater! I’ve been looking for a while now what sweater to make, and you made it easy. Thanks for the quick blog post.
Thank you very much, Robbie! <3
