Quick, light-but-warming new pullover or cardigan, anyone?
MDK Cristina getting this party started with the Léttlopi I took on board for the Bang Out a Sweater that is not to be (this year).
I’m whipping up Amy Christoffers’ Felix Cardigan.
Through January 18, we’ll include a free ebook download of Field Guide No. 17: Lopi starring Mary Jane Mucklestone’s Daytripper Cardigan and Destination Pullover. Details here.
Join me! Start today. Start when your yarn arrives. Share pics and pattern ideas. Let’s LOPI!
Solbein is also beautiful. It is by M.J. Mucklestone. I am stash diving to see if I can make it.
Yes! That one has been on my list too. Can’t wait to see your stash palette!
I made a Solbein sweater with Lettlopi a few years ago and I love how it came out. But maybe I’m one of the sensitive ones but its SO itchy, I have to be sure to wear a turtleneck under it, or more, then its ok. But I resist knitting with any Lopi yarn again for that reason. For my Daytripper I used a Valley Yarns Alpaca that worked well as a substitute.
This is the Solbein:
And this is my Daytripper:
I want a Felix Cardigan! I love that thing! Hope there’s some Lettlopi left after the MDK Gems is done . . . #WillKnitAnyColor
I went through my stash of Lopi and I think I have enough for the Felix Cardigan. It will be multi-colored, but I’m excited to cast it on. I have a Felix pullover and I love it. Super fast knit!!!
Fantastic! Looking forward to seeing this take shape.
Making loads of nighttime progress! To crop or not to crop?
Also—some FG23 test knitting (in a palette of the darker Norwegian Wool colors) happening.
Oh, great! I am going to knit a Destination pullover, my fourth MJM Lopi sweater. Lemme go find that yarn I stashed at the end of February …
Going to try Destination Pullover. Did the cardi last year. Big fan of MJ Mucklestone!
I’ve decided to make the Daytripper Cardigan and I think I have the right colors of Lettlopi in my stash! I love the way Lettlopi works up and just decided this morning that I needed to make a cardigan using it as I’ll be traveling in March and can take it with me. Can’t wait to get started!
I ordered Lettlopi to make the Great Love cardigan by Ankestrick before the holidays, so this KAL is just in time to encourage me to actually start on it! Thanks, MDK!!!
I knit with Lettlopi often and this is one of my favorite sweaters that I have made and wear often hiking. The sweater pattern is Westfjords designed by Mona Zillah, (bunnymuff) & there is a matching hat for a small project.
beautiful sweater and photo!
Thank you! I am sorting though my Lettlopi now to find some colors for the KAL. I just ordered Brick for a sweater but I think I am going to go with a smaller project for the KAL.
I might have read some of the directions wrong. Are only sweaters and cardigans allowed for the KAL?
Anything Lettlopi your heart desires!
So glad you’re joining us! Looking forward to seeing your project take shape!
