Knitwear for Autumn

I might be the worst blog keeper ever. I have bee so busy with all other stuff in my life that I have forgotten to update my blog. I have published a several designs and patterns over the spring and summer which haven't been seen on my blog yet. These knits are perfect for colder autumn days. Here they are:

Please see more photos on my Ravelry designer page, thank you!

Muu elämä on pitänyt niin kiireisenä, että olen melkein kokonaan unohtanut blogini. Pyyhitään vähän pölyjä esittelemällä nämä blogista unohtuneet neuleohjeet, jotka olen julkaissut viime kevään ja kuluneen kesän aikana. Tässä:

Estri Cardigan

Estri is open front cardigan, knitted from top down with set in sleeves. Fun stitch pattern is perfect with two colors creating vertical stripes, however can be worked with one color, too. Knit striped sleeves or solid colored sleeves.

Edestä avoin neuletakki on neulottu ylhäältä alas istutetuin hihoin. Hauska mallineule on täydellinen kahdelle värille, jolloin se muodostaa pystysuoria raitoja. Voit neuloa myös yksivärisen takin, jolloin etukappaleisiin muodostuu kaunis tekstuuri. Neulo raidalliset tai yksiväriset hihat.

Yarn: Madelinetosh tosh dk
Needles: US6/4mm





Sport Aureed

This is a basic cardigan with lovely pleats on the back, seamlessly constructed from top-down with raglan sleeve shaping. This cardigan is the little sister of Aureed design, which has the same fit and sizing but it features a lace insert in the back with same fit and wearability.

Tämä on perusneuletakki, hyvin istuva jokapäiväntakki, jossa on kauniit rypytykset takakappaleessa. Takki tehdään ylhäältä alas raglanhihoilla saumattomasti. Takki on Aureed-neuletakin pikkusisko, Aureed-takissa on sama koko ja istuvuus, mutta siinä on takana pitsipaneeli.

Yarn: Madelinetosh sport
Needles: US6/4mm

Grisalia



(Photos by Tanu Kallio)

In the middle of the summer knitters must think about the winter. At least in Finland it inevitably comes... And sometimes the summer weather might be so cold that you might need some wool on you. 

Grisalia is a completely seamless pullover design, fun to knit and effortless to wear. Little bit of brioche stitch makes the pullover interesting but not too heavy. Perfect tailored yoke increases make this pullover to fit nicely. There are no waist shaping which gives casual look. 



Yarn: Knitlob's Lait Pohjan Neito
Needles: US6/4mm & US4/3,5 mm

Louhittaren Luolan Pohjan Neidosta on syntynyt tämä peruspaita, joka on patenttineulosta etukappaleestaan ja muuten sileää neuletta. Neule syntyy saumattomasti ylhäältä alas, täydellisin olkapäämuotoiluin.

What to wear...






(Photos Tanu Kallio & Meiju K-P)

Sometimes I feel like I have nothing to wear. Do you share that feeling too? However I think that shawls are very good helpers in this problem. With a small shawl you will accessorise your outfit easily. This time I needed a shawl to go with my yellow bag.

This is a design with very addictive stitch pattern. It is a slip stitch pattern with quite easily memorizable repeat. The pattern works with both variegated and (semi)solid yarns. You will need one fingering weight yarn to get your shawl. You can continue the pattern repeat to get as large shawl as you need.


Pattern: What to wear with my Yellow Bag? by Meiju K-P
Yarn: Madelinetosh tosh sock (or any fingering weight yarn)
Needles: US4/3,5 mm



Joskus tuntuu siltä, ettei ole mitään päällepantavaa. Onneksi on huivit, koska niillä voi helposti asustaa melkein asun kuin asun. Tällä kertaa halusin huivin, joka mätsäisi keltaiseen laukkuuni. Tein kaksi, molemmat sopii. 

Huivissa on käytetty helppoa nostettujen silmukoiden mallineuletta, joka on koukuttavaa neulottavaa. Mallineule toimii sekä moniväristen, että yksiväristen lankojen kanssa. Tarvitset yhden vyyhdin fingering-painoista lankaa. Huivia voi myös suurentaa loputtomiin mallineuletta jatkamalla.

Huomio! Yksivärinen mallikappale on näytillä Snurressa Helsingissä huhtikuun ajan!

Profilia








(Kuvat Tanu Kallio)

May I proudly present: Profilia! 

Last summer we were on a family holiday in Rhodes Islands. We were driving around the island and the mountains and there was this small village called Profilia and I wanted to name my shawl after that. The yarn for this shawl came from Greece, from talented dyer TréLiz. 

This shawl is a collaboration with luxurious hand dyed TréLiz yarns. You will get the pattern with a luxurious knitting kit, read more about the kit and preorder from here. Depending which kit you choose, you will get yarn, pattern, tote bag & needles. Kits are available only a limited time, until 15th of February 2016. Join the KAL (here) to knit your own gorgeous Profilia shawl! The KAL will run from 7th of March until 7th of April 2016. If you join the KAL you have a chance to win next upcoming TréLiz knitting kit.

I am a lazy knitter. In a sence that I hate weaving ends but love gorgeous results and this time I wanted to design a shawl that would be easy to knit but yet interested enough to keep the interest ‘til the end. I didn’t want to cut any yarns during the project, so this is a design with minimal finishing.   

This shawl is knitted from side to side. It is shaped with increases/decreases on the other edge and short-row wedges that shape the shawl into symmetrical shape. 

Pattern: Profilia by Meiju K-P
Yarn: TréLiz TréLiz 50% Superwash Merino 50% Silk, colorways: Silver, Mines of Moria, Ice Sky.
Needles: US4/3.5 mm

Pattern language: English!

Tämä huivi on tehty yhteistyössä kreikkalaisen värjärin TréLizin kanssa. Ohje on saatavilla vain hänen neulepaketissaan, joka valinnastasi riippuen sisältää langat ja ohjeen sekä puikot ja laukun. Lue lisää paketista täältä.
