Väggbonad - Pullover
As a designer, I have long used woven wall hangings as a source of inspiration for my knitting. They have inspired sock, mitten, and sweater patterns. What fascinates me about the older tapestries is that they have so much in common with the technique of knitting, including motif shapes and materials, as well as yarn. First and foremost, features on woven tapestries can easily be transferred to knitting because there are often pretty, rhythmic, and simple patterns that facilitate combining colors. In this sweater, the color scheme was achieved through a balance of muted blue tones in combination with a bright white and yellow for both lively and toned-down expressions.

To avoid questions: Before you begin knitting, read through the pattern.
Stitch count: Always knit or crochet a gauge swatch as recommended in the pattern. If your stitch count doesn’t match the gauge given in the pattern, try again with larger or smaller needles or hook. If your gauge doesn’t match that in the pattern, your item will not be the correct size or shape.
Highlight the size you will knit or crochet throughout the pattern to make it easier to follow the instructions.
Charts: It will be easier to follow a chart if you mark your row with a ruler and magnetic board or sticky note.
Ease: The amount of ease included in our garments varies depending on the type and shape of the garment. To determine the right size, we recommend that you first measure your body. Then you can calculate the garment size depending on how much ease you want the garment to have. The schematics for each piece show all the garment measurements.
Two-color stranded knitting: When knitting more than 3-4 stitches of the same color, twist the color strands around each other on the wrong side to avoid long strands or “floats” on the back. If the yarns need to be twisted on several rows/rounds, make sure you do not stack the twists in the same place to prevent the yarns from showing through on the right side.
Yarn alternative: Please be aware that the gauge (tension), yarn quantity and the shape of the work varies if you use another yarn (even in the same yarn group).
Tips för hand dyed yarn: Make sure you have enough yarn to complete your project. The colors may vary from time to time. To get a smooth color mix, you can alternate between two skeins: knit two rows from one and two rows from another skein.
