Wings. Textured Sweater Pattern. The Gift Of Knitting.

Today I can finally share with you some details of the sweater I have been working on since spring. The moment I had Daisy yarn in my hands, I knew the future piece has to be simple, feminine and with just a touch of texture. Linen, silk and hemp blend has a double action – crisp stitch definition and amazing drape.

I wanted to keep the details simple, but interesting enough to work on. I always wanted to incorporate twisted stitches in one of my designs, I think they create such a great visual effect, standing out against the stockinette stitch background. But I wanted to use this pretty simple stitch in a little bit unconventional way – this is how the idea of the staircase pattern occurred to me – I just love this gradual transition to the stockinette stitch and the way the stitch columns are “growing” from the raglan seam. And this detail gave the name to the sweater – Wings.

The rest of the sweater is very simple – good old stockinette with some Twisted rib on the side to keep you interested and engaged. After blocking Daisy opened up in such a beautiful way – the fabric floats around your body with a slight silk sheen. The sweater looks great with simple pair of jeans or white pants, casual and effortless. I’ve made my sleeves slightly longer, just the way I like it – they fall all the way down to my fingers, but as it is a top down construction, you can stop at any point you want. I also love rolling them up for a more casual look.

The finishing is very simple – i-cord around the neckline and raw edge sleeve cuffs to allow the natural curling of the stockinette stitch fabric.
