Happy Wednesday, dear friends!

Cable Pullover Pattern. Organic Wool Moeke Yarn

I am happy to say that the first sweater in our small collection with Moeke Yarns is off the needles. This design was such an indulgence for me – I always wanted to have a textured wool cable pullover in neutral shade in my wardrobe. When I was knitting it, the name – Journey – came to me all of a sudden and it seemed like a great fit. This yarn is so special to me and I was thinking what a long  journey it’s been through before turning into these cables… From Ioana’s Grandmother knitting in her small village to an idea of creating a wool company, from Romanian sheep to a beautiful skein, from Europe to Mexico, from a sketch to a finished sweater…

The pattern itself is in process, but test knitting part will start this week already! Two wonderful knitters, Saskia (@wolzoeerlijk) and Josh (@breiwerken) will start their Journeys this week. Both of them are great supporters of Moeke Yarns! Saskia has her own yarn shop where she carries sustainable yarns and craft materials – www.wol-zo-eerlijk.nl; and Josh is a vivid knitter and knitwear designer (breiwerken.wordpress.com). To follow Journey’s journey we created a special tag #Journeysweater; there you will see test knitting progress and stay tuned for the pattern release. Even if you don’t have an Instagram you can still follow it.

I will give you a short overview of a sweater. Journey is all about texture. I just saw it this way the moment I got Elena yarn in my hands.

One of my favorite details – super cozy double sleeve cuffs and simple 1*1 ribbing neckline that creates a nice contrast with the richness of the main fabric. I also love the neutral natural color that takes on a different shade, depending on the light.
