I wasn’t thinking too much on what colour to knit next when knitting this Reis sweater by Stephen West, so it turned out to be quite exciting (and nervous) when the outcome started to reveal closer to completion! It’s a piece for him, but the pattern itself is gender-neutral. I used Comfy, Tibetan and Tyrrell DKs from Martin’s Lab and Drury DK of Townhouse Yarns to knit the sweater.
Beanie Bopper for Him
This age and gender neutral pattern, Beanie Bopper by Woolly Wormhead, is highly recommended for someone looking for a quick and easy knitting project. I knitted with big merino chunky yarns hand dyed by Qing Fibre in the U.K..
Beanie For Him
I mix and match some leftover yarns that are not enough to make something if knitted individually to create this beanie. I tended to go with the flow and let the remaining length of the yarns to define the design. The raw yellow yarn is indeed from a craft store in Inis Meáin, Ireland.
I came across this wonderfully hand-dyed Irish Drury DK Townhouse Yarns called Forest Trails in This Is Knit in Dublin. What a lovely name to reflect the colour! I knitted this scarf with wavy drop stitches for my partner as his birthday gift, but I think both men and women can wear it as the colour tone is pretty neutral. This double-knit yarn comprises 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon.
