As I consider what I want to knit for the Summer Sweater Knitalong, I keep coming back to big and boxy. I have some Reverie in Hawk that I bought in a Knit Picks summer sale and I think it would be perfect for Il Grande Favorito by Isabell Kraemer. I’m thinking the alpaca will give a nice, soft halo and make it extra comfy. I would then wear the sweater until the pills had pills, you know.
This knitalong is a “true sweater” kind of knitalong so I don’t want to wimp out with the three quarter sleeves and wool blends. No, I’m going all the way with wool or alpaca, fuzzy, and oversized. Of course, lightweight and shorter sleeves would be so much wiser and get more wear, but I am embracing summer sweater knitting. In 100+ degree heat. With my hair matted to my face. My crazy happy face.
Join the Summer Sweater Knitalong where you can knit with a crazy happy face too.
