As part of our work preparing to get the Abbeyhill sweater design into knitters' hands we once again invited some knitters from our community to work up their version as part of our preview knitter programme.
Our preview knitters for Abbeyhill did such a wonderful job we couldn't resist another blog post to show you their work! This time, all the versions featured use a range of different yarns which we hope gives you ideas for yarn substitutions that work for your needs. (Find the first blog post where our preview knitters used Tukuwool Sock here.)
Size 2 — Jessica, @jujyfruit0
Yarn: Quince & Co Chickadee Organic Heathers
Ease: 3" / 7.5cm
Modifications:I made my sleeves bracelet length, shortened by 1" for my size.
Modifications:I wanted a slightly more cropped body so took 10 rows off the body length; I also like a deeper yoke so added those 10 rows back onto the yoke before the decreases. I did 2x2 rib for the neck so it would match the cuffs and hem just because I like those to match.
Kits feature Tukuwool Sock, a lustrous wool from Finland in rich heathered colours. It’s tightly spun with three plies for a rounded structure with ideal stitch definition for the cabled border. There’s also nylon for increased durability, because we know you’ll be wearing Abbeyhill over and over. A digital copy of the pattern is also included with kit purchases. Order your kithere.
Have something perfect in your stash?The digital patternis also available to purchase separately for immediate download so you can get started with swatching straight away.
