the Trellis Collar Sweater


A couple of weeks ago I previewed the Trellis Collar Sweater, a sweater I'm wearing right now even though it's 70 degrees outside because I love it so much! I've said it before but this yarn Blissa from the BagSmith is divine. An absolutely gorgeous alpaca 85%, extra-fine merino 10% & polyamide 5% blend that has a nice loftiness to it thanks to it's crocheted tubular structure. It still has some alpaca heft but not nearly what you would expect, even at 85%. This sweater with the over sized yet versatile collar worked in this yarn is like an embrace and when you take it off you really feel it's absence,
it's that wonderful.













Knit using 4-4.5 skeins of Blissa, the half skein extra is for the version with sleeves and #17's. Worked top down in one piece it's a fairly quick knit. Although it's pretty straight forward without any challenging techniques I would still rate it for an intermediate knitter since there is some involvement on the knitters part to get a perfect fit. The sweater pictured (S/M) was made for a measurement of up to 43” around the shoulders with a bust size of @32-34”. 
A larger size is coming soon.

Available as a PDF download. $6.50

  7. Your designs are unbelievable. Georgous!!Are you the slim/tiny model? I love the bulky patterns the best but tend to shy away from them being a larger size. The bulk adds more to the bulk if you know what I mean. If I was thin I would make them all. I just subscribed to your site.
