New: Sidelines Sweater

Sidelines is a casually oversized sweater that can be tailored to your preferences: With 8 body and sleeve circumferences, 6 lengths from cropped to tunic-length, and 3 neckline options to choose from, you can mix and match to create your dream sweater!

Because of the sideways construction, the Sidelines Sweater’s wide rib texture with slipped stitch detail turns into a textural horizontal stripe pattern that is combined with a wide hem, and cuffs in twisted ribbing and a folded neckline (optionally worked in contrasting colors).

The modular construction makes this an (almost) seamless project.

Wanna get scrappy with me? 😊

Join me this Wednesday, March 24, at 6 PM (CET / Vienna time) for my very first Instagram Live, where I‘ll take you stash diving, answer all your questions around sideways sweaters, my sideways designs and I‘ll also give away some patterns! 

This will also be the kick off for a very informal #SosuSidewaysKAL 🎉

My stash is full, but I my scrap yarn baskets are overflowing as well, so I think I‘ll cast on another scrappy sweater, like the Palette Cleanser Sweater you see here.

I wear the original gray one in @rauwerk_wool all the time, but on really cold days or when I‘m in the mood for something more colorful, I gravitate to this scrap yarn version.

For this scrappy Palette Cleanser Sweater I used two strands of fingering weight and one strand of lace weight mohair held together throughout. 

One of the fingering colors is medium-dark gray throughout (different but similar gray shades of Pure or Sock by @rohrspatzundwollmeise), the second strand of fingering are smaller scraps of colorful yarns from my projects, randomly switched every three rows (to divide tail ends on both sides), and I also used two different shades of @sandnesgarn Tynn mohair (because I didn’t have two of the same in stash), a lighter gray for the sleeves and a darker gray for the body. The mohair really helps to blend all the colors together and makes this my favorite cold weather sweater!

You may think that with Spring just around the corner, it’s not the best time for warm knitwear. But it’s been snowing and snowing and snowing in my little corner of the world and I’m in the mood for comfort, warmth and using up some of my leftovers!

See you soon!
The Ravelry pattern preview pages for “52 Weeks of Shawls” will go live two weeks before the publication day, on 16 April.

In the meantime, @laine_magazine is treating us to some sneak peeks, like this beautiful glimpse at my contribution, the Stairway wrap: a rectangular brioche shawl knit in @treliz_colorispower Psyche!

Pre-orders for the book are now open, at lainemagazine.com and local LYS stockists!

blocking day! I didn’t have enough of the main color left to do contrasting icord per pattern, so it’s all in orange. and I’m not mad about it. 🤩🍊🤩 i ended up with 6 grand or less of each color remaining, a very efficient pattern! .

and now it’s time for brioche. this section will be one color brioche, which I haven’t done in a while. I know it’s way easier than two color, so here I go! .

picking up the stitches along a second border has left me with a pile of ripples. also not flat because I refuse to use a longer cord. 😅 single color brioche is great, but I feel like I have a lot of yarn leftover. hopefully I use it up in the border!

There's a wonderful new design from sosuknits coming soon and she was so nice to send me the test version so that I can have fun during my quarantine 😘😘 and I love the #lizziesweater 💙
In preparation for a small surgery I have to stay at home this week as a precaution after a corona test (no Infektion!) 😕
But there are lovely people who take care of me and so the time is not that bad. In these days I am happy about all the ways social media offers to be in touch. Virtual hugs are also wonderful 💃🕺😘
