Cloudwatching

A marled top-down Raglan sweater
in a fluffy combination of Brioche, Pearl Brioche & Garter stitch.

The sweater is knit seamlessly top-down with Raglan shoulder shaping. For the main part of the sweater, the two colors are held together, creating a marl effect. For added contrast, the cuffs, hem, and neckline finish are worked with Color A only.

The body is worked in Pearl Brioche stitch, the shoulders/sleeves are worked in Garter stitch and the Raglan lines and sides are worked in Brioche stitch.
The hem is finished with a doubled/folded border knit with a single strand of yarn in Stockinette stitch. The Cuffs are worked in Brioche stitch with two strands of yarn of the same color. The neckline is raised in the back by working short-rows before binding off neatly with an i-cord.

Use a mix of (semi-)solid and variegated/speckled colors (eg. a solid Lace-weight and a speckled mohair/alpaca blend, or vice versa) with a low to medium contrast for a more cohesive marl effect.

Da hab ich wieder ein Schmankerl für Euch gefunden: der neue Sweater von Susanne Sommer sosuknits : „Cloudwatching“. Ich hab schon mal die Anleitung gecheckt: von oben in einem (also ohne lästiges Zusammennähen), mit Raglanärmeln, ein kleines Muster, dass das Projekt schön kurzweilig sein lässt und von der Passform mal nicht so kastig und oversized. Gestrickt wird zweifädig mit einem Lace- und einem Flauschgarn, aber man könnte natürlich auch bei passender Maschenprobe ein glattes Garn hernehmen. Wobei ich bei dem Namen und dem Muster so ein Flauschgarn schon arg schön finde. Na Mädels, was sagt Ihr? Ist das schön oder ist das schön? 😍. Die Anleitung gibt’s übrigens auf Deutsch ☺️. Und denkt dran: beim Kauf von Wolle ab 40€ übernehme ich für Euch die Kosten für die Anleitung, drucke sie Euch aus und schick sie per Mail.

This pink and orangey-red CLOUDWATCHING sweater is sure to brighten the darkest winter day! 💖

For this version, I combined an orangey-red Color A with a fluffy pink Color B. The result is vibrant and full of depth and dimension.

So instead of combining the fluffy Color B with a neutral Color A as in the previous photos, why not layer your fluff with a deeper shade of the same or a similar color? 

It’s like knitting with watercolors - so much fun!

Let’s take a closer look at the textures of the CLOUDWATCHING sweater: 🥰

☁️ Garter stitch sleeves
☁️ Perl Brioche stitch body
☁️ Brioche stitch Raglan lines and sides

The mix of stitch patterns and marled fluffy yarn create an airy, yet still warm sweater that’s soft like a cloud. 💖

The changing textures also make this an engaging and fun knit to the last stitch that almost floes off the needles on US7/4.5 mm needles. 😊

Every pattern has at least one little  detail that makes my little knitter’s heart do a happy dance. 💖🥰💃

In the Cloudwatching sweater, it’s definitely the transition of the marled Pearl Brioche (knit with 2 strands of yarn on 4.5 mm needles) to the folded hem (knit with 1 strand on 3 mm needles).

The texture, gauge and color difference just makes me so happy. 

And it takes a close look to see that the Color A yarn for the sweaters’s finishing details has been used throughout the body as well, but marled together with the fluffy Color B. #KnittingIsMagic

And - 🤫 - because the main part of the sweater is knit with 4.5 mm needles and 2 strands of yarn, it’s a surprisingly quick project for Lace-weight yarn. 😊
