Silky horizons

10:51 AM

Repeating Horizons pattern was published in January, and I showed woolen version of the pullover, knitted in Madelinetosh DK, in my post at that time. I've been wearing it all winter, but it's starting to look like spring even here in Helsinki and the woolen pullover is getting a bit too warm. So it's time to share a silky version of the pullover with you. This is actually the first prototype version of the pullover. I knitted it last summer and I love the feel of the silk yarn: Katia rustic silk.


Pattern: Repeating Horizons 
Yarn: Katia rustic silk in colorways 77 (249 g) and 74 (133 g) 
Needles: 4,5 mm


As often happens, I didn't buy enough yarn to start with, and by the time I realized that I need more, the store where I bought the yarn was out of stock. Luckily, Jonna from Kerä was nice enough to propose another store that had the yarn in stock, and turned out it was even from the same dye lot! Two of my friends used the same yarn to knit their versions of the pullover and you can see Rillinki's version on Ravelry. It's too bad the yarn was discontinued.

    1. Thank you! It's funny how the colors are so totally different in the pictures, the others taken in daylight and the others inside a building - and the true colors are something in between :D
