This pattern by Marie Wallin is part of the Rowan Knitting & Crochet Magazine 57. Like Masotti by Martin Storey, which I have already talked about, is it a gift.
Marie Wallin used 12 different colours in this design. 6 shades of Rowan Cotton Glacé (100 % cotton) and 6 corresponding shades of Rowan Purelife Revive (36% recycled cotton, 36% recycled silk, 28% recycled viscose).
The stripes are formed alternating the yarns. After 2 rows of Cotton Glacé there are 2 rows of Purelife Revive. The colours are melting into each other. This melting effect is enhanced using moss stitch throughout the whole garment.
The back is knitted from bottom up, whereas the front is knitted sideways as an interesting design detail. The drop shoulder sleeves are knitted in the same pattern as the main body. A simple one row cast-off completes the neck-opening.
I love how the colours are melting together. The plain, smooth and shiny Cotton Glacé and the tweedy, soft and matt Revive are good team-players.
Hope you have a lot of sunshine!

Konrad…..moss stitch? You always amaze me 🙂 Your friends are so lucky!
Wow, cool. I had no idea it was like this from the original photos… AND that the back a front were different. Neat!
Love the colours and the texture. Love your knitting. Nice gift!
This is lovely.
You are so generous, gifting entire sweaters. This one is beautiful, with all its colorful stripes.
auch wieder toll geworden 😉
Brauche auch mal wieder mehr Zeit fürs Stricken. Na gut dafür habe ich mehr gesponnen und gehäkelt 😉
I’m also knitting my 5th sweater this year. Is it possible to have a knit addiction or do we simply love fashion in particular the clothes made by ourself?
This sweater is very beautiful like all the others!
Thank you so much Fabienne, I think both of your arguments are right. Yarn addiction and self made fashion.
