Urban

I realise that I haven’t christened the new blog with my own knitting yet so here’s a sample of what I’ve been finishing off. As always, I have tons on the needles but getting something finished is always a good reason to blog. This was a heavily modified knit that I really enjoyed and think I’ll get a lot of wear out of.


The pattern is a Veera Valimaki design called Urban which she published in her recent collection called ‘Modern Times’. It’s a really stylish, simple garment that is worked from top down in one piece and calls for fingering weight yarn. I decided to change mine up and I’m so pleased with the result.

First of all, I worked the garment in Malabrigo Lace which is a lot lighter than the recommended yarn but blocks like a dream. The colourway here is a stunning blue called ‘Tuareg’ that I know will match lots of my wardrobe so I can layer this peice over and over again. I also opted for ‘raw’ edges and omitted the seed stitch to encourage the curl. I love the effect and I didn’t include buttons or the v shaped back either to keep things simple. You can see more pictures on my FO page here.
