Linnutee Top Pattern.


When you get together with a yarny friend you visit a yarn store, right? I usually buy at least a skein to support a small business, what the yarn stores often are. These gradient yarn cakes are so pretty! My friend helped me to choose the colour. At first, I didn't have a clear idea of what I'm going to make. I didn't want a shawl but 600 meters of fingering weight yarn isn't enough for a shirt in my size. I chose a solid contrasting colour and cast on.

So I had this gorgeous gradient yarn cake and I wanted to make a sleeveless top. I didn't want to interrupt the flow of the gradient colours. The best way seemed to be knitting in rounds without short-row shaping. Wide-open ballet neckline looks nice for a summery shirt. 

I'm obsessed with mosaic knitting. I designed a little bird motif for the #Loojangulinnud shawl and wanted to use it again. It’s exciting to knit with gradient yarn and see colours slowly emerging and changing.

Mosaic knitting is an easy way to create striking colourwork. Mosaic knitting is perfect for beginners who are attempting colourwork for the first time. Just knit and slip stitches, one colour at the time. No need to carry both yarns.

The shirt is worked from top down, starting with I-cord cast-on. The ribbing on armholes and at the bottom is finished with I-cord also. It makes a nice and firm finish which does not stretch out.

See imelise värvivahetusega lõngakera tuli koju lihtsalt sellepärast, et oli nii ilus! Esialgu mõtlesin salli teha, kuid salle on juba tehtud hulga. 600 meetrit 8/2 lõnga on minu suuruse särgi jaoks vähe. Kuna mul on ikka veel mosaiik mustrite kudumise isu, siis oli otsus lihtne. Leidsin sobiva kontrastse ühevärvilise lõnga, linnumotiiv tuli Loojangulindude sallist ja nii see top lõpuks valmis sai.

Südasuvine Shawl.

I can finally say I did it! I started to design this shawl three years ago. I made several swatches and charts before I was happy with it. The Südasuvine (Estonian for Midsummery) shawl is worked in one piece from the bottom up. Cleverly placed increases on both sides and in the body of the shawl create a triangular shawl with elongated points, cosy to wrap yourself in. The tip is quite narrow and at first, it looks like the wingspan isn't going to be wide enough. Still, by the end, you get nice long wings due to invisible increases in the heart pattern. 

Get the pattern from my brand new Payhip store or Ravelry with the introductory discount of 25% off (coupon code: Summer) until midnight, Thursday, August 20 (UK time zone). 
The pattern is also available in LoveCrafts.

Happy knitting!

Ma võin lõpuks öelda, et Südasuvise salli muster on valmis! Ma hakkasin seda rätikut kujundama kolm aastat tagasi. Tegin mitu proovilappi ja mustriskeemi, enne kui sellega rahule jäin. Südasuvine sall on kootud ühes tükis alt üles. Nutikalt paigutatud kasvatused mõlemal küljel ja mustri sees loovad küllalt pikkade tiibadega kolmnurkse rätiku, mille on mõnus endasse mähkida. Alustades on tipp on üsna kitsas ja esialgu näib, et sall ei ole piisavalt lai. Sellegipoolest saate lõpuks tõttu mõnusa laiusega salli kavalalt mustrisse paigutatud kasvatuste tõttu.

Muster on saadaval minu uhiuues Payhip'i poest või Ravelry'st sissejuhatava allahindlusega 25% (kupongi kood: Summer) kuni keskööni, neljapäeval, 20. augustil (Suurbritannia ajavöönd).
Muster on saadaval ka LoveCrafts'is.

Ma väga sooviks näha Sinu salli! Postita oma pildid Instagram'is ja/või Facebook'is ja lisa tag, et ma näeksin Sinu ilusat tööd!
