My very last finished object of 2019 was my five color Frid Sweater. A fun knit, lots of color and super quick.
Sometimes when I want to accomplish a lot I go with bulky knits, hence why all my projects in December were knit on big needles and either big yarn or two strands held together. That way I can accomplish something pretty quickly. So when I won the Love Crafts Knitting Blog of the Year 2019 (thanks for voting for me), they offered me a prize of yarn! I decided to go with their MillaMia Naturally Soft Super Chunky yarn and I told them to surprise me with a rainbow of colors. When the yarn arrived the 10 balls took up a bit of space.
I decided I should just go ahead and pick a super bulky pattern and whip something up really quickly with it. I remembered seeing this Jen Geigley sweater pattern that just had a bunch of super bulky yarn in a bunch of colors and I had also seen the Good Night, Day Frid sweater pattern and liked the full sleeves. So I made a mash up of both!
I knit this main body using size 17 needles and this was super quick. I just kept knitting until I got to the end of the ball and even weighed the yarn so I knew how much I would need for the sleeves. I will admit that it’s a super warm sweater – not one I’ll wear to school – but it’s also super soft. A great weekend sweater to throw on.
And that completes my finished objects from 2019! Phew, I made it. Next up recaps of what all 2019 brought my way – it was jam packed. What was your favorite knit in 2019?
