Inspired by Balenciaga’s asymmetrical colour blocking tunics I have designed an oversized sweater with a snood in shades of grey with a beautiful lilac as contrast. Three different stitch patterns from the same family complete the look. The seed sweater and snood is knitted in Amoretto, a lovely soft and warm mixture of alpaca and cotton, with a stunning stitch definition. Here is the professionally photographed Oversized Seed Sweater and Snood.
Amoretto is a mixture of 45 % alpaca and 50% cotton with a small percentage of polyamide 5%, 100 g/3.5 oz hank, 250 m/273 yds. Tension/guage is 27 sts in pattern equals 10cm/4″ square using 3 mm/ US 2-3.
The sleeves and the snood is knitted in Seeded Rib Check, see swatch below, using col A, Lilac, while the body of the sweater is knitted in 2 identical middle sections in Moss/Seed Stitch using col C, Pale Grey, and 2 identical side sections in Seeded Rib Pattern using col B, Dark Grey. The collar band is knitted in the round.
The pattern will shortly be available as a downloadable PDF in English and Norwegian, due to be translated into German soon, through selected yarn shops see www.thomaskvist.se
