Hello! I’m enjoying seeing everyone’s projects, and I’m very intrigued about all of the Lopi love. I bought Lopi to make a Felix pullover about a year ago, and I really struggled with how scratchy it is. Does it get better once you wash it? Or does it just not bother most people?
Yes! It’s crisp to knit with, but it softens with blocking. It might not ever be a yarn you chose to wear next to your skin. Here are two MDK contributors on Lopi for they why it’s like that and knitting at a loose gauge (that works for Felix too).
My Felix is marinating until I finish this patch for the family quilt my sisters are making for a new baby in the family. Since I can’t post this on Instagram where the mother, my neice, follows me I’m posting it here. All those stitches in the square need to be filled before I can knit again.
This is great! Love your colour choices.
Fantastic! I love these colors together.
Thanks hope will turn out ok.
My first Destination sparkle transition from the glacier blue is done and I am on to my second color, lagoon heather, which had a supporting role in my Stopover. I threw a little fourth color into the pockets with my other body color, Moor. I love this fast sweater-making!
These colors look together.
Just finished Felix cardigan—started a while ago. Used stash yarn, not Lopi.
Made size 48, which fit great on shoulders and arms but ended up too big on torso. I didn’t want it to be cropped so added some length, which I probably should have skipped and/or done some shaping. I didn’t have it in me to rip out and redo. Every project is another lesson learned!
First Felix cardigan, first time knitting with Lopi! Going with basic black to fill a wardrobe hole. Many of the sweaters I’ve knitted ride up and flare out in the back, especially on a shorter length sweater. I’ve been experimenting with adding length/pushing the shoulder forward with short rows across the back just below the neck, with mixed success. Does anyone else have this problem? Please share if you have a good solution.
I am making the Water Rabbit cardigan. I just wanted to let everyone know it is free for a limited time during Chinese New Year.
Beautiful!! You are very quick!
I just love these colors together! Beautiful!
I love it. I would love to try my hand at this craft.
Oh so very nice!! I love how the colors are working together!
