Another No Frills Sweater!

DSC04319

This is the last project of 2017 and the first finished one of 2018. I knitted the No Frills Sweater by PetiteKnit before, so it was a quite straightforward sweater, perfect for Christmas holiday travels and cozy evenings in front of the TV. It’s the (late) Christmas present for my girlfriend, and the only modification she requested is a mock neck with a folded neckband, like I saw on another No Frills Sweater on Ravelry.

Acorn Sweater

It is finally getting hot in Berlin, and very much against the season, I finished my Acorn Sweater, designed by Junko Okamoto. Starting this sweater was quite impulsively – I saw the pattern and immediately wanted to start. I thought it could be a good way to use up leftover yarn from my No Frills Sweater, and to finally use the light grey Drops Puna yarn that I had bought on sale in winter and never used for its intended purpose.

As soon as I discovered the No Frills Sweater on Instagram, I knew I had to try this pattern designed by Mette Wendeboe Okkels of PetiteKnit. It’s the perfect pattern for a first top-down experience and some easy and straightforward knitting. After spending time on complicated and elaborate patterns at the end of last year I really wanted something simple to enjoy. The pattern gives much room to experiment in colors and I have already several other color combinations in my mind.

I held a light beige brushed alpaca silk and brown alpaca yarn together and I really like the result, even though I will chose more contrasting yarns for the next versions. I love the oversized shape with the fitted ribbing, perfect! It’s freezing right now here in Berlin, so this is the perfect sweater for now.

I have been wearing this sweater for one week straight and I can’t make myself take it off! I think this is the most cozy sweater I ever made…
