Well, this is the third year that I join in Mal March!
What's Mal March? Malabrigo March is a big event in Malabrigo Junkies Ravelry Group. There are lots of KALs/CALs, competitions, prizes and discount from yarn shops and indie designers. Basically, it's like Christmas!!
I’m offering 25% off all of my self published patterns using ”MM16” coupon code.
Sale includes single patterns and eBooks and the coupon code is valid until March 10 at midnight (Rome time).
Since this year there are not official sweaters KAL in the Junkies Group, I will start an unofficial Mal March KAL!
By request, the pattern chosen for the knit-a-long is Ultraviolet.
Ultraviolet is a fitted pullover seamlessly worked in the round from the top down, with narrow ¾ sleeves. The pullover features a lovely diamond motif on the front, plain fabric for body and sleeves and a very feminine darted waist shaping.
The original version is part of my "A study in Single" eBook and is worked in Rastita, but it can be knitted in Arroyo or in any sport/dk weight yarn too!
Sizes available: XS (S, M, L, 1XL, 2XL, 3XL)
This is the month that precedes spring and that makes me think of large, airy sweaters in lightweight fabric to wear over a t-shirt.
In this crazy winter, I can already see the daisies in the meadow below my window and I can almost feel the sweet fragrance of sun-dried grass!
Pepita reminds me that feeling...
Pepita is the third sweater included in The Ultimate Modish Sweater Club, designer for your spingtime!
Pepita is an oversized, v-neck pullover mostly worked in the round, from the top down.
The pattern features an easy but effective cable and lace panel for the shoulders, narrow ribbed sleeves, deep v-neck and a curved bottom.
Available in sizes: XXS (XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL)
Finished chest circumference: 34¼ (38½, 42¼, 45½, 50, 54½, 57½) inches/87 (98, 107, 115.5, 127, 138, 146.5) cm.
The pullover is intended to be worn with 6-8 inches/15-20 cm of positive ease at the chest.
Sample shown in size XS on a 32 inch/81 cm bust.
For my sample, I used Arroyo by Malabrigo in Escorias.
Arroyo is one of my favourite yarns: very versatile, incredibly elastic and available in stunning variegated colours too!
Pepita is currently only available as part of The Ultimate Modish Sweater Club on Ravelry.
