Just a quick post to introduce Jewel, published in the new Let's Knit issue 35. My copy arrived on thursday just before we left for London. I've not had time to read very much yet, but have flicked through it a few times and it's a great issue.
Jewel is knitted in the new Artesano superwash merino which is slightly thicker than regular dk but gorgeous and squishy to knit with. Perfect for the easy Crest of the wave lace pattern. The sweater is styled beautifully dressed up with a skirt and a low slung belt in the magazine but it could also be worn over a long-sleeved t-shirt and skinny jeans for a weekend look. the perfect layering piece for autumn and winter.
It looks so much better on the model in the mag than on my dress form though.
