Beautiful Projects - Strokkur
As I write this, I'm wearing two sweaters and a shawl, indoors. It's most definitely sweater weather and Strokkur is one of our favourites. Mine is looking a little worse for wear after two years of constant wear and an accidental washing incident, so a new one is at the top of list. It's a pattern too that lots of knitters have modified in some way, by adding steeks (and our friend and designer Miriam Felton wrote a post for us on how to do this), different cuffs and finishing or even including extra contrast colours. Here are a few of your lovely projects to inspire, or make you feel a little warmer, if you need it.
BeginswithaC's Strokkur is more straightforward, I love the more natural shades combined with the bright colour pop.
Turning Stokkur into a cardigan is quite a popular modification, and looking at this amazing sweater by Strokkur (yes, that's her actual Ravelry name!) I can see why. Her version is such a perfect fit, and wonderful with buttons.
Carriert0ne knitted up this lovely Strokkur, more similar to the original but with a lovely warm orange providing the contrast.
This more unusual colour combination is a striking one, and just right for walking in the woods, as SplitStitch demonstrates!
