Seeing Green

I never guessed I would start knitting a collection when I knit Let It Flow earlier this month but that’s precisely what has happened.  What’s more…I’ve found some patterns I am itching to knit, too!  Sweet!  I’m back baby!

I’ve already completed another Let It Flow…stream of consciousness type project.  I call it Cascade because of the cascading cable detail on the ribbed sleeves.

As you can see, it’s a soft V-neck (or slightly elongated scoop) shape.  I am very fond of changing up the neckline.  Most patterns I find have you work a crew-neck.  I find crew-necklines to be a YAWNFEST.  Now don’t get me wrong.  There is nothing wrong with a nice crew-neck sweater but I am all for changing it up a bit and exploration.  I mean really, how can one evolve without change?

I knit this sweater in Malabrigo Yarns’ Rios in the Lettuce colorway.  Green is my favorite color after all (grey is a close second). I also knit this with size 9 circular needles.  That is a little bigger than is specified for Rios.  I have to thank my mom for directing me to this yarn.  It was her idea to swing by a knitting shop in Oak Park, IL.  It’s called Knot Just Knits.  I’d never been there before and I was just in time to snatch up all 5 skeins they had in stock!  Thanks mommy.

I also finished the sleeves with an invisible cast-off for 2×2 rib.  This video is good for knitting looking to brush-up on this technique.

Enjoy!
