Throwback Thursday: Through The Keyhole

Published on Wednesday, 23 November 2016 14:45

This throwback is kind of a special one for me. It's because it's one of the first sweaters I ever made! Oh, the heady days od 2009. Do you remember Through  the Keyhole? It's from Twist's inaugural issue

I made mine in the closest colours I could to the original, because I thought it was basically perfect, and because I found a pile of stunning pink yarn on super sale because it had been left in the sun and faded a little. I learned about turned hems and bust darts and purl ridges and strategically curled edgings. It was a thrilling adventure.

Now that there are so many stunning gradient yarns on the market, I could see this pattern making a serious comeback. It would also be lovely in a single shade with the stripes only as a textural element.
