Arctic stripes sweater & the winner is ....Babs.

Arctic Stripes sweater.....I love how it turned out !

Arctic stripes Sweater.Shoulder shaping & neck knit with Natural 100% Qiviut
Arctic Stripes Beanie.

I think it was well worth the effort of starting over  four times.

The details: I knit it longer to make more of  a Tunic style. This one is size L/XL (for me) measures: 44'' bust, Length-back neck to hem 33'' inches long. Has rolled edges on the hem, sleeves & neck. The wrists have a  thumb gusset as seen here-

I wanted the neck, shoulders & wrists to be super soft & super warm so i used 100% Qiviut in the natural shade. The Black & purple used throughout this design are also 100% Qiviut.

Neck & should shaping with 100% Natural Qiviut.

The hem is knit with Shetland Tundra yarn(contains 15% Qiviut) & has 2 side slits for comfort & ease of wearing. The natural light coloured yarn you see with the black stripes is our Natural Decadent yarn-50% Qiviut-50% cashmere.

Our winner drawn at random is Babs. I have your colour choice & size so will begin knitting your Arctic stripes sweater shortly.....congratulations to you & Thank you to all who took part.

watch this space for another giveaway to be announced shortly. 2018 is ALL about Qiviut smoke lots of new designs coming soon & i will host a couple of giveaways throughout the year♥
