Sweaters you could make with Darn Good Yarn

by Nicole Snow April 30, 2015

Yes, I openly admit to being a lazy knitter. It's not that I'm lazy per se... I just have a lot going on. So, if I put a project down I want to be able to pick it right up again in about oh... 2 months. I also don't like my yarns to be exclusive. Sure, I could round up some cabled fair isle craziness but that's not what Darn Good Yarn is about. The complexity of these yarns will speak for themselves in understated patterns.

Recently, I was asked for a few recommendations for a slightly fitted sweater. Here's what I came up with! If you know of others that should be on this list, please email me at nicole@darngoodyarn.com.

Also, if you ever have a question about how many balls of yarn to get for a pattern, email us! That's what we're here for!

http://parallaxknitting.com/about-2/kaleidoscope/ While on the intermediate side-- you can really hammer down on shaping. Premium Recycled Silk Yarn would do the trick here!

http://www.whattoknitwhen.com/2008/12/ellie.html this does have more fit but it's nice and light and slightly sheer. It would be wonderful in the Premium Recycled Silk

http://www.dailyknitter.com/grace.html This would work up in using possibly 2 strands together on 10.5's You could shorten the sleeves how you see fit! The yarn would be the Premium Recycled Silk

http://www.lanagrossa.com/service/mdm/05_2004/index.html This one is a little tangier and could be worked with any of the banana fibers except for the Landscapes Series

http://www.dailyknitter.com/kelly.html worked in yo-yo diet, this would work up nice a quick!

http://www.pickles.no/late-summer-sweather/ A little looser, I don't think you need to strip this one.. just go for it in our Premium Recycled Silk. With the nice wide stitching it would look stunning with a strong solid fitted tank top underneath it!

http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEff10/PATTmythos.php I love this sweater and it will be on my to-do. Use the solid colored recycled silks or the premium recycled silk sari yarn.

http://chrisknitsinniagara.blogspot.com/2008/02/silk-v-neck-pullover.html Could you imagine this in one of our more subdued blends like Golden Temple Recycled Sari Silk.. oo la la!

http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/tonto/tonto_b.html Yes, whilst a little on the intermediate side, it's really not too bad. Do a guage check.. you might be able to use two strands together!
