Are you ready for a new sweater? How about giving colorwork a try? You’re in luck! This is Episode One for Season Four of The Sweater with Kathleen Dames. We will be knitting Enwreathed Pullover over the course of 12 weeks. Well, you’ll be knitting Enwreathed, and I will be working on a new design, The Heart Wants Pullover, which has similar elements (so I can show you what we are talking about) but with some differences that should be illuminating. I’m so excited and hope you are too!

 

Today we are going to talk about choosing your size, what ease means, and how you can customize your sweater. Remember: You are the boss of your knitting :)

Yarn info:

-Biches et Buches Le Petit Lambswool https://www.bichesetbuches.com/ - the original Enwreathed Pullover and Cowl were knit in the MC: Bleu Noir Fonce (dark blue black) and CC: Gris Clair (light grey)

-Manos del Urugauy https://www.manosyarns.com/ - Kathleen will be using Allegria in Euphoria for her CC on The Heart Wants Pullover

-Swans Island Company https://swansislandcompany.com/ - Kathleen will be using Swans Island Pure Blends Fingering in Oatmeal, which has been discontinued, but Swans Island Sterling Fingering is a great substitute with the same 85% Merino/15% Alpaca fiber content
