It sounds a bit like a foreign destination one would like to travel to. But however disappointing it might be -to you and me- it's not. It's the name of a knitting pattern. A sweater. Not a town. But it's a sweater that you could easily imagine wearing while traveling to that foreign destination. Not so disappointing any longer, hey?
And it's a great sweater. It's roomy, it's airy, it has a great flow. It has pockets waiting to be filled with little gems. It has a wonderfully cute brooch to close it. It looks fab closed or open. Actually it's the kind of sweater that can be worn all year round and will be worn all year round, I'm sure.
For this beauty I used a yarn by La Droguerie called 'récup'. And récup it is... the yarn consists 100% of recycled fibres. It feels a bit like a cotton tweed. It's soft and rugged all at once.
The pockets are positioned exactly on the right height. It's just a matter of time before they will get heavy from all those glittering stones that our little lady collects from every drive way we pass...
The raglan sleeves give it that nice flow and make it a sweater in which kids can move around freely without being restricted by numerous seams on their arms and shoulders. It also gives the sweater that indicative and decorative edging at the seam of the raglan.
And little lady is especially taken with this mouse brooch. It's the cookie that does it. Now I want a brooch like that for my own sweaters.
Perhaps it's time to make one in an adult size....
