Caitlin has done it again with another fabulous design that is a must to knit. For the testknit version I have pictured here, I used KOKON Kidsilk Mohair 2ply/lace weight yarn held three. I personally love how it softened the design and gave it a more sophisticated feel.....like a knit you would wear dressed up with you a beautiful tulle skirt and some heels or dressed with down with your favourite pair of jeans.
Caitlin describes her Fonda Sweater design as "a cute little popover top featuring a fun bobble/twisted rib motif,veryloosely inspired by Jane Fonda’s wardrobe in The Electric Horseman. I know that’s a bit of a dated reference, but I can never predict where inspiration will come from! Fonda’s cropped fit is very easy to adjust if you prefer a longer fit. The sweater uses a tubular cast on and bind off- you can find links to tutorials for those techniques, as well as my preferred bobble-making method included in the pattern.
This pattern features some fun techniques including a tubular cast on and bind off, twisted stitches, and my new favourite type of bobble. I have included links to tutorials for all the techniques used in the design, so no need to fear if you haven’t done these before. I got you!"
