Love triangle

© Pickles.no

A little while ago I spotted this pattern on the website called Pickles. They offer some very beautiful, simpel patterns. One of the patterns is this gorgeous poncho, it was love on first sight. After some smal knitting projects like hexipuffs, hats and scarfs it is time to try something bigger! I ordered some yarn online from Drops Karisma in Natural 01 and Light greyish green 02. I never knitted with this particular yarn from Drops, so the first thing on the list is knitting a gauge swatch. Normally I skip this part of the process, since I'm a very lazy knitter, but this time I want to make sure my gauge is right. This project isn't a small hat afterall.Wish me luck ;-).

Een poosje terug vond ik dit patroon op een Noorse website genaamd Pickles. Ze hebben een aantal simpele, maar oh zo mooie patronen. Dit is een van de meer ingewikkelde patronen en ik was spontaan verliefd. Na armbandjes, mutsen en sjaals is het toch echt tijd om een wat groter draagbaar item te breien.

De wol heb ik besteld via internet en is van Drops Karisma in de kleuren Naturel 01 en Licht grijsgroen 02. Ik heb nooit eerder met deze wol gebreid dus eerst maar eens een proeflapje maken. Normaal ben ik daar te lui voor, maar aangezien dit project best flink is leek het me toch verstandig.
 Ik ben benieuwd of het lukt!
