Hi everyone!  Happy 2020!!

The Ethereal Sweater is finally ready for test-knitting.  Ethereal is knit top-down, it’s seamless, and it has fun and lovely details like a vertically striped collar, a slipped stitch yoke in two colors, and a split hem.  The cuffs and the hem share one of my favorite textured stitches, the rice stitch – in a single color on the hem and two colors on the cuffs.  It is written for sizes 28-62 in. (bust).

This pattern is one in which choosing your colors is half the fun.  It works equally well in a monochromatic scheme as it does in a complementary scheme.  Speckles are great fun in either the main color of the contrasting color – or both.

Here’s a sneak peak of Ethereal:

Join me over in Yarnpond if you are interested in test knitting Ethereal.  Yarnpond is a website that was created specifically to provide an online platform for test knits.  Not only will I list my testing calls there, but members will have access to lots of designers looking for testers.  It’s the perfect match!  ❤

The test for Ethereal is here: Ethereal test.  You have to be registered as a member to access the test, but it’s easy and free to register.  You can sign up to be notified when I have tests by going here: Knit Equals Joy on Yarnpond.  I hope you will sign up if you’re interested in test knitting in the future…the 2020 pumpkin will make its debut there first!

Have a wonderful week!

xoxo
