Happy knitting!
A while ago, I had to walk away from a design I really really loved because I just couldn’t get the fit graded.

So, my pleated party dress with pockets was never published, even though my lovely test knitters completed their projects. I still, ever so frequently, think about it and what could be changed to make it work.

Maybe this year, I will make it work! I’m not good at letting things go. I’m really bad at giving up. And I love this one too much.

Inspired by @jojilocat and her beautiful sweater, that just wasn’t meant to be just now.
And because I’ve been so busy working on the new design (from the previous post), I’m rewarding myself by working on another new design that has been in progress for a while and will hopefully be out very soon! ☺️

I looove the fluffy pink Kumo (colorway Aimée's Flashy Lipstick) marled together with the orange-red Helix (colorway Coquelicot) from @labienaimee. 🥰

Pearl Brioche, Brioche and Garter stitch - my three favorite textures to knit - all in one cute Raglan sweater! 💖♥️🧡

Oh, and if you don’t want to wait on this new pattern, my Birthday Sale is still going until January 19 and you get 36% off all my patterns on Ravelry and Payhip with the code SOSU36! 🎁

Care to sneak a peek?

I’m working on a new #sidewayssweater design and I’m so in love with how the lines come together on this one! This is such a fun and addictive project, I can’t wait to share more with you. 

(It’s also a beast to grade, so it will keep me busy a while longer…)

And before I forget: my birthday sale is still going on: get 36% off all my patterns on Ravelry and Payhip with the code SOSU36 until January 19. Happy knitting!

With a simple sweater design, the magic is in the details, I find.

Like the twisted rib cuffs with the tubular bind-off, the folded ribbed neckline and the double-knit hem of the SHORT STORY sweater.

There are so many fun techniques in this pattern, this is definitely not a boring basic stockinette sweater!

And if you’re a little worried about so many new techniques, don’t be: the accompanying video tutorials covers the provisional cast-on, the double-knit hems and closing the sides with a three-needle bind-off and Kitchener stitch!

Short Story is available in English and German, as a Desktop/print version and one optimized for mobile devices, on Ravelry and Payhip. 

Yarn kits are available from @naturesluxury. 

Get 22% off the pattern with the code STORY22 until January 2, 2022!

One of the questions I get asked a lot is -what can you make with slub yarns? .
I would say you can make anything that uses a simple stitch pattern that will highlight all those beautiful little floofy slubs. A perfect example is this wonderfully warm Ewe Rock Shawl which utilizes garter and brioche stitches. I used my Floofy Base in 4 coordinating colors to create this wickedly beautiful light to dark fade

I'm so in love 💗 with my #sosumkal2021 testknit wrap. Not wearable at the moment due to the very high temperatures, but nice to look at 😁

Another beautiful glimpse of the Risttee sweater for issue 9 of Laine Magazine. While I’m enjoying the warm weather and sunshine in southern France that feels like holding onto summer just a little longer, I’m looking forward to the autumn with the coppery colors of this warm sweater. The Ravelry pattern page is live and you you’ll be able to see many of the gorgeous versions the fabulous test knitters made .

This week's featured project is a monochrome masterpiece created by knitcola from a pattern by sosuknits and our black yarn. We can't get enough of this look, and if you're looking to create your own, we stock most of our yarns undyed and the wool yarns in hand-dyed black.

Tag us in your projects for the chance to be featured in #IASUProjectTuesday

Repost knitcola:

My last finished knitted object in Dubai!! I’ve finished my second #sosumkal2021 Knitting with black yarn is not my favourite especially as I do most of my knitting in the evening once the kids are in bed. Thanks to the talented & ever so stylish seaofstring for suggesting the genius idea to knit this in black and white. The white is actually undyed from my lovely yarn supplier botanicalyarn and the black is from its.a.stitch.up (black hand dyed yarn is a real treat to find so if you need some now you know where to go!)
