Lis Knits: the Weidlinger pullover

Lis Knits: the Weidlinger pullover

When the first Weidlinger samples started arriving at the office I knew it was something I would have to knit. My favorite sweaters all seem to be knit in seed and moss stitch. I love these stitches for their engagement while knitting and the finished fabric just seems extra cozy and plush to me.   Weidlinger also spoke to me because of its construction; I could see that it would be put together like nothing I’d knit before.

When our first sample of the Ivon Cardigan arrived at BT late last summer, I tried it on and immediately experienced that stealthy robe-ness that I crave, particularly when Fall and Winter are looming large on the horizon.
