Now here is our “KAL2 with Kristen & Konrad”.
This time we are using Rowan Pure Linen and are knitting a design by Lisa Richardson from the supporting brochure Pure Linen Collection.
We have chosen Trinity.
Kristen will knit it to fit for her and I will modify it to fit it for a men (ok, actually for myself, teehee).
Here is a close up picture of this design.
I have already received my Rowan Pure Linen in shade Kalahari from my online shop.
The next weeks Kristen and I will share our progress of knitting and modifying Trinity by Lisa Richardson.
Looking at the picture of Trinity, how would you modify this pattern? Especially knitting it for a man?

This stuff is very fancy string! Totally a new experience in knitting……it will be fun seeing your version of Trinity!
I have never tried linen, how is it??? pure joy I imagine 🙂
Yes it is! Fantastic drape and easy to knit. And smooth and cool against the skin.
I need to try it soon 🙂
I’m so excited to follow along with your second KAL with Kristen! I have no shaping advice but I’m confident your sweater will look fantastic! You are using my favorite shade of Pure Linen, too. So fun.
I’m looking forward to seeing what you and Kristen get up to with Pure Linen! I have been knitting with it also and you’re correct Konrad, it is easy to knit with and has a lovely drape and sheen.
I’m looking forward to seeing your changes!
I imagine you would probably want to remove all the waist and bust shaping from the pattern, for a start… I enjoyed your previous KAL, looking forward to this one.
I don’t see a lot of shaping, to be honest. I would just remove the collar embellishments and round out the neck opening a little bit, or make the V- neck not as deep as it is. Linen is a great choice, so lovely to wear when temperatures rise.
Im knitting Trinity too Konrad so looking forward to seeing yours and Kristen’s. The Pure Linen looks stringy on the ball but when knit is completely different. It is quiet soft and has a lovely drape to it.
