Stasis

Finally got around to taking a few photos of my Stasis pullover, which I think I finished back in November.

This has become the equivalent of a pullover sweatshirt in my wardrobe. I generally prefer wearing skirts instead of pants, but when I do wear pants, this is the sweater I reach for every time.

The Brooklyn Tweed Loft yarn is smooshy and warm but lightweight, and has worn in exceptionally well. This sweater has been bundled over shirts and under coats, and has been excessively cuddled by my cat (as some of these photos will suggest) and has been up to these challenges at every turn.

Leila Raabe designed a perfect relaxed pullover here, using a really beautifully simple colorwork motif that works so well with this woolen spun yarn. I just can’t say enough good things about it.

I, uncharacteristically, didn’t make any modifications to the pattern. Initially I thought I’d make it a little bit more fitted, but I love how slouchy and cozy this is. I’m really glad I didn’t take it in at all.

(This last photo is more a photo of Felane than of the sweater. I can’t help it, the girl just always looks so good.)

  1. Hi! love your sweater! I´ve been thinking of knitting this sweater, but thinking it might be too hard? I´ve knitted a couple other (basic) sweaters, never patterns though. Do you think it will be too hard?

    • I actually think this is a really approachable pattern. It’s mostly stockinette, in the round, with no seams. If it’s your first time doing colorwork, I recommend Debbie Stoller’s Stitch n Bitch Superstar Knitting as a good introduction to colorwork techniques, so you can get comfortable holding the yarn. But I think if you’ve knit a few sweaters, you can knit this one! The pattern is very well-written.
