Berenice Sweater by Julie Hoover (published in BT Kids)
Vacation time is long past, school holidays are over tomorrow and the regularly scheduled life is about to begin anew. I can honestly say that I am quite happy for school to start again after the customary 6 weeks hiatus. While „vacation“ always sounds so nice in the beginning it does certainly come with its own pitfalls and stress factors. At least I got SOME knitting done.
Berenice – Summer knitting at the lake
The Berenice sweater was such a delight to knit. It went quickly and Geilsk Bomull go Uld held double worked up quickly. The color is a pale lavender and it’s very soft and cozy. It also shows cable details and lace nicely.
Berenice – cable and lace panel
I’ve decided to go with the size 6 yrs based mostly on the fact that the sweater looks nicer with only one cable framing the lace panel. My daughter is 7 years and thanks to a slightly larger gauge the sweater fits well with still a bit of room. I maybe should have added some length but forgot and just went with the pattern instead.
I would love to have one of those for myself 🙂
Needle: US 4 – 3.5 mm
Yarn: Geilsk 2 ply Bomuld go uld; used not quite 2.5 skeins
Colorway: Violet C11
