The Modra Pullover is a cute, fitted sweater, knitted in Cumulus yarn. Worked flat before it is blocked and seamed together, this sweater looks best with no ease to show off the delicate lace detail that features in the body of this sweater and is echoed in the sleeves. Waist shaping is worked to add flattering shape to this feminine garment.
Size ranges are multisized to include a range of sizes from a bust size of 32 inches through to 50 inches with an actual bust size of 32 1⁄4 to 50 1⁄2 inches. Work up the closest size to your bust measurement with minimal ease for a snug and flattering fit.
This smallest size of this sweater only requires 5 balls of Cumulus thanks to the light airy gauge it is worked up in. Shown here in the Teal colourway, the yardage requirements run from 5 x 25g balls of Cumulus to 9 x 25g balls of Cumulus Yarn.
Perhaps a shrug seems more appealing with this inconsistent Autumnal weather?
The Aowena Shrug is a pretty, lightweight shoulder cover, with a simple and effective lace pattern for a little added glamour that is also designed by Vladimira. This shrug is worked flat before being seamed during finishing and with easy to follow charts and simple stitch repeats this makes it a perfect beginner’s lace project or ideal for knit night chatter for the more experienced knitter who needs a little stitch interest to hold their attention.
Aowena is multisized: S, M, L and XL with the smallest size only requiring 3 balls of Cumulus. Cumulus can be bought at a wide range of retailers and the pattern is available both in print from retailers and via Ravelry as part of the instore sales program. So whether you grab it today at home or use it as an excuse to visit your local store, you’ve got everything you need to get knitting.
- Have a great week!
