Oydis Knitted by Suzanne Chartrand

I was so delighted to see Suzanne Chartrand, aka rejean on Ravelry, test knit version of the Oydis Sweater. This striking photo showing how the claret coloured pullover matches her hair, blew me away. Suzanne knitted size XL in Patons Classic Wool DK Superwash, and used a smaller needle size, 3.5 mm/US 2.5, after the a-line decreases to make the top part smaller and a better fit for her. It was the first of many test knit Suzanne has done for me. She is a retired teacher, which makes her ideal as a test knitter in addition to 50 years of knitting experience, living in Val-des-Monts, Quebec, Canada.

Here is another photo of the front of the pullover with the curved hem more clearly. You can find Suzanne’s notes on her project page where she writes: “When I saw the picture of the pattern it was love at first sight. Test knit for Linda. Great pattern. Easy to follow.
Linda includes many links to videos on techniques used in the pattern”. Thank you so much, Suzanne!

Finally, here is a photo of the back. You will find the Oydis Sweater pattern in Norwegian, German and in English for sale on Ravelry (as an individual pattern but also in an Norwegian & English e-book: Norse Goddess Collection), Loveknitting and Woolspire. It is available in sizes XS to 2XL and I have many more gorgeous versions of it to show you, later.
