kaari


Kaari is exactly the type of pullover that I would wish to be wearing if I were to find myself lost in the wilderness during the middle of winter. So warm and since it is knitted out of lion brand fishermen's wool, this sweater is more like outerwear and feels pretty indestructible. I love the relaxed feel of the shaping. Didn't love all the seaming. I ran out of yarn at the midpoint of the collar which ended up being a good thing. Luckily, I had a skein of fishermen's wool in a dark brown maple tweed which matched well with the lighter oak tweed. So now I can choose to wear the collar folded inwards with the reverse stockinette side showing or folded outwards with the dark brown tweed on display.


As for those handy dandy utility pockets? Sadly, we don't have a dog to walk and I certainly do not have a green thumb. Not much good with woodworking tools, either. Good thing I know how to knit! This could be my knit walking sweater if I can learn how to walk and knit at the same time without tripping :)

  1. What a lovely and warm looking sweater! Is the fisherman's wool scratchy on your skin? I have a couple of skeins but haven't knit them up yet. Can I say- I love your new banner image? I've been on a self imposed blog break ever since I went to India so its brand new to me. Happy New Year!

  3. Haha, that might be the most knitterly sweater ever with its built-in project bags! I like the shape and look very much with the collar folded out.

  8. Hello, I hope you don't mind my asking, but have you any idea how I can get hold of the Kaari pattern? I've looked on Ravelry, and contacted Berroco, and tried Amazon for the Nora Gaughan booklet, but no luck. I'm not clever enough to improvise it, but would very much like to knit one. If you've any advice, my e-mail is
