I’ve been eyeing up the Visser sweater by Anna Maltz for quite a while. It’s got pretty much everything I want – stripes, interesting construction and masses of wearability.
The one thing that’s stopped me casting on is that the yarn called for is a DK and what I really wanted was a lighter version of this.
So when Anna and I were chatting about possible yarn support the idea of a 4ply version of this sweater came up – and I was thrilled. Our 4ply BFL, silk and alpaca is one of my favourite yarns and it’s going to make a luxurious garment that will wear well.
If you follow Anna on Instagran (where she’s @sweaterspotter) you’ll have seen a photo of Anna in her Halvis sweater. It’s knitted in 4ply BFL, silk and alpaca in a navy blue and silver combination.
You’ll need just 2 skeins each of 2 colours for sizes up to xs/s/m and 3 of each for sizes l/xl/xxl. The pattern should be ready early in the new year, so if you’re keen to get organised then you can use code BOXING20 to save 20% on the yarn.
I know it’s not always the easiest thing to pick colours from a screen, so I’ve popped some combinations together for you.
The code BOXING20 is valid on everything in the shop until 1800 on Sunday 30th December.
