Sweater – A – Month June 2014

September 1, 2014

I’m using this labour day weekend to catch up on some of my blogging. I’ve wanted to share this sweater for a long time, I absolutely love it!

The Loki sweater by Ragga Knits was my first attempt at both an Icelandic pattern and steeking!  I thoroughly enjoyed both! Although I think I need a bit more practice with my steek, I’m actually hoping to take the steeking class by local, Melissa Caines, at Knit City 2014!

I really loved this pattern, and I cannot wait for the weather to cool down so my little guy can start wearing this!  My husbands maternal side of the family is from Iceland, so my plan is to make all my boys Icelandic sweaters this year (and hopefully make a trip someday to Iceland!).

 

I knit the sweater with the Briggs and Little Sport. A fantastic yarn for colourwork. We have a fantastic colour pallet of this yarn, perfect for your next project!
