Vika - again!


Brooding landscape? Check.

Freezing Irish weather? Check.

Kind of frightening ruined castle? Check.

Can a snuggly warm handknit be a match for all this? YOU BETCHA, BABY!

Here's my girl modelling her second Vika sweater during our trip to Ireland earlier this year. (See previous version here). Not much to tell - she loved the jumper, wanted it to be slim fitting again, so I made child size 8 and extended the sleeves and body to accommodate her extra length. It's a pretty intensive knit (all those cables!) but I got it finished during the trip for her to wear, and she loves it. Phew!

Project Details:
Pattern - Vika (for kids, there's also an adult version) by Brooklyn Tweed
Yarn - The Fibre Company Cumbria Worsted from Yarn + Co.
