Beatriz´s sweater


Recently I finished this sweater for a good friend. It is knitted with the wool that I spin, which is very sturdy and somewhat rustic. The pattern was also design by me for this kind of wool, while baring in mind the specification of my friend: she wanted colour.

Cast on - Knitting

This way of casting on  the stitches is very good for a strong stretchy start. It is recommended for socks. In Portugal we knit with the yarn arround the neck. Like that, the tentions is done by looping the yarn in a finger in the right hand.
