Are you ready for another Ta Da? This one I’m very proud of, it’s a knitted project. I’m not much of a knitter, but recently I’ve seen so many cute knitted projects that I couldn’t resist trying. Warning, this post contains pictures of me being extemely happy haha.
I have learned so much from this project. It’s been a hassle in the beginning, unraveling the project 3 (!!) times. But once I got the hang of it, it worked like a dream. I learned the kitcheners stitch, I learned bobbles and I learned to work with short rows. All these terms were unknown to me, so I had to struggle to learn new things (thank you Youtube!). But now I know a lot more and the result is stunning.
Just in time too, since the winter is finally kicking in here in Holland. This project is a real head turner when I walk the dog. People either think I’m like a pretty character from Robin Hood or think I am some crazy girl that thinks she is in some lame fairytale.
I don’t really care what people think about this one, I like this hoody so much! It’s warm and soft and the color differs during the day when the light changes. From grey to blue to minty green.
The pattern is used is from my favorite designer at this moment, Tiny Owl knits. You can buy it here. It’s not an easy pattern when you are not a very experienced knitter. When I opened the pattern I was a bit scared. It looks very complicated because of all the cables and bobbles, but it is very well written and when you take one baby step at a time you’ll get through. It’s fast too, since it uses needle size 10.0 mm (US 15) and super bulky yarn. I used Drops Andes and used up only 4 skeins (6 where recommended for my size), so I have some left!
Mr. boyfriend made the pictures, I felt kinda aaaawkward. But he was very helpful haha. He likes the hoody but what matters the most is the comment of my mom when I was waring it:
"Oh dear, you look so adorable again."
