I was lucky enough to be given a copy of Magpies, Homebodies and Nomads by Cirilia Rose when it came out.
It’s a beautiful book, filled with great advice about choosing colours, swapping yarns and much more. Plus patterns. Lots of patterns.
I’m feeling that there’s a sweater shaped gap in my wardrobe, and I think the Studio Pullover will be perfect.
There will be some changes – I’m planning on something plainer than the heart – but the sweater shape is gorgeous.
Look at the shoulder detail.
I’m going to make this with our new 4ply British wool and alpaca which I’ll be holding double. I’n not sure if I want stripes or a marl effect from a strand of each of 2 colours.
One thing’s for sure – it’s going to feel a lot quicker than knitting socks!
