Early spring is here and we have already passed the equinox on Sunday. Easter is around the corner and in fact the easter holidays have started here in Southern Germany today. The crocuses and jonquils are opening their eyes to the warmer sun. And one German name for jonquil is Osterglocke (Easter bell) and so they are right in time.
This is also the time of year you are thinking of lighter garments. The aran-weight pullovers are getting to warm during daytime but it is still not warm enough for summer garments. It is still chilly in the morning and among the shades. It is time for a between-season wear.
This year I found the perfect yarn for this purpose: Rowan Alpaca Merino DK.
It is light-weighted like a feather but warm enough for chilly days and so I decided to look for a colour, which is on trend for spring. I have had some difficulties to choose one, because there were three shades which I really liked for my garment. I also thought of using all three in block stripes, but at least I go for one colour: Uppingham.
For the design I wanted to have something easy, with no frills. It should be something I’m able to wear every day. So I decided to go for a roll-back pullover in plain stockinette stitch with a simple k1, p1 rib.
Here is the result:
A Happy Easter Season to all of you and happy knitting!
