CH 19: How to choose a sweater pattern to knit


How to choose a sweater pattern

Spring and magic is in the air in London this week! I’m planning my self indulgent sweater for Squam and starting a knit along to chat about it.

What’s in the WIP?

This week I’m talking about deciding on my self indulgent sweater for Squam. You can have a look at the main contenders on my Sweater Pinterest board.

Some past sweater efforts

I’ve decided to knit Aislinn by Amy Herzog.
