I showed you very blurry photos of my Ignus Junior in progress last week. Unfortunately the photos don’t get much better, as my camera battery died (as it does when you forget to recharge it) and the monkey for whom it was intended (see below) was not feeling very cooperative when the sweater was finished and I wanted him to model it.
I do have finished photos, but they’re from my phone’s camera, so they’re not the greatest. This pattern is by Carol Feller, and is available for sale now for $5.95. I received it as a free pattern because I pre-ordered her Scrumptious Knits collection, and I love love love this pattern (and want to make the adult-sized Ignus for myself, but my stash does not allow for that at the present time). It’s a top down raglan with simple cable detail, and in the smallest of the Junior sizes, it’s a really fast knit.
The yarn has been discontinued—it’s Elsebeth Lavold’s Classic AL in the Spruce colorway. It’s an alpaca and wool blend with a lot of squishing power. I didn’t block it before I left, as it’s a bit too big on the monkey in question right now, and I suggested to his mother that she block it when it starts to get too small on him. Thankfully it’s still a bit chilly in their part of the world, so maybe he can wear it soon. Or maybe she’ll just need to block it by the time next winter comes around.
In the meantime, I’ve been chugging away on my stripey socks (as seen in yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday post), and will soon start swatching for my Larch cardigan! So excited to begin that knitalong.
