I managed to get up this morning before Twist Collective went live. It’s always so exciting to go through pages and see all those beautiful designs. And this time I have a cardi in it too!

Ohje: Roheline, shop link, rav link
Lanka: Filatura di Crosa Zara
Puikot: US 6 / 4 mm

It’s not usual that I make a prototype first but this time I did. I still don’t have photos of the prototype-cardi although I’ve been wearing it a lot. Thanks to the prototype I realized that Drop-stitch pattern looks so much better with twisted stitches that I made that change to the actual pattern. And I love it, twisted stitches open up the pattern and make it look neater.

I recommend wearing it with no ease or even a bit of negative ease. This way the Drop-stitch pattern opens up beautifully and looks as it should. And I love the yarn, Filatura di Crosa Zara. I’ve worked with it before and it’s just perfect.

    Kiitos kaikille todella paljon kehuista! Oon kulkenut hymy naamalla koko päivän :)

    Thank you all so much for your kind words on my design! I've been smiling all day :)

    On se upean näköinen! Näyttäis vaaleanharmaana varmasti tosi kauniilta. Harmi vain, että ennen joulua ei ehdi ottamaan mitään ylimääräisiä juttuja työn alle.

    Voi vitsit kuinka kaunis! Klikkasin juuri tämän neuleen ensimmäisenä suuremmaksi kun avasin sivuston ja kukas se olikaan suunnittelija? Sinun mallisi ovat todellakin minun makuuni!
