Arctic stripes sweater-Giveaway for )Octobert/November 2017

I have to extend the deadline to December 31st 2017......sorry had very little time to work on this Project....Read on !


Arctic stripes sweater giveaway for October/ November 2017
This giveaway will run in conjunction with the Shetland wool blog.
Arctic stripes beanie.

For the longest time i have wanted to turn the Arctic stripe beanie into a sweater !
And this is my favourite colourway.....Purple, natural qiviut & Raven Black
These are the yarns i have selected.
Top row- are the Shetland Tundra in medium fawn.
2nd row- 100% Qiviut in Purple, Natural & Raven Black.
Picture is a bit overcast but the Natural pure qiviut & fawn Shetland wool are very similar in shades......only difference is the softness !

so all i have to do now is wind my yarns into cakes, make a couple of drawings to plan out the stripes & what goes where then i can get it cast on.

The design i have in mind is similar to my weekend qiviut sweater. Unisex style, Rolled edge cuffs, very comfortable, round neck line, not too close fitting more relaxed.
Please check back for updates.

  28. ups, looks like green stripes is not available? size xl anyhow

  29. So glad I found your page and I love the inspiration of your Facebook page (and liked it)- Will definitely be keeping an eye on all the pretty stuff there!!!

    I love the natural/black/red or natural/black/raspberry combinations and if I were to make a sweater, I would make it XL because if I am going to be wrapped in the lovliness of qiviut, I want to be snuffled into as much as I can!

  30. Number one fan here! I've liked your FB page for quite a while now and I love knitting with your yarns. I'm Glenna Keating on FB, not Quilt Guru. Colour choice? This is a hard one . . . I like the orange, purple and red. If I had to choose one, I would choose the Raven Black/Natural/Orange combination. As for size, I guess X-large would be about right, as I like my sweaters roomy and it's for a chest size 47-48".
