Strange Brew Knitalong 3

It’s time for casting on! Starting a new project is so fun especially when you have done all that prep work, swatching and charting and plotting.

The Strange Brew Pattern where we can design our own fairisle sweater project leaves a lot of the decision making to us – the knitters! For example you can choose the ribbing stitch  for your bottom band and cuffs and neck band. Will it be 1×1, or 2×2 or 3×1? I chose a 1×1 ribbing stitch since I am knitting a small size and I thought the smaller rib would match the sweaters smaller stature.

If you like you can also add fairisle stitching to the body of your sweater and/or the sleeves. I have decided to do one motif just above the bottom band and a smaller version of the same just above the cuff.

Now it’s knit, knit, knit up to the arm pits!

Craftily yours
Kristin
