It seems of late that I can’t knit for the current season: I knit a merino fall sweater under the Spanish August sun, and here I am knitting a cotton summer sweater when fall is definitely ahead of its schedule here in Belgium!
When I began this sweater about ten days ago, the weather was so warm I was pretty sure I’d be able to wear it towards the end of the month. Now I’m not so sure, to say the least! But I still want to finish it before starting another project since I don’t do UFOs (I’d never finish anything if I did).
The pattern is from Phildar No. 86. I didn’t see the potential of this particular pattern rightaway because the colours really put me off. I’m not usually one to fear colours, but come on, red and orange… and green… and black?! I’d be surprised if even one person knit this pattern in those colours! I initially thought of black and white, then I remembered I wanted to add a few grey and pink items to my wardrobe, so I chose those two colours instead.
The start of the schoolyear means I haven’t had a lot of time to knit lately, but the sweater is progressing slow and steady. The stockinette stitch and simple construction mean that I can take it with me and knit everywhere, which has helped a lot.
Hello from Russia ! you are doing wonderful things , I liked everything )
Oooh, thank you so much! 🙂
And hello from Brussels !
Ravie de t’avoir rencontrée dimanche passé !
De même, c’était vraiment sympa! Dis, c’étaient bien les tiens les quelques tissus vintage que j’ai emportés ou je confonds?
je pense que tu confonds, à moins d’avoir pris le tissu rose à rayures blanches.
Ah ben oui, je confonds, zut! Mais c’était bien sympa quand même. 😀
Gorgeous! Love the colour choices and that pattern looks really interesting.
Thank you! Once you get past the questionable colours, the pattern looks promising indeed.

I do apologize, but I can neither speak nor write in French. (en francaise?)
I would love to have this Phildar pattern no 29, but the magazine (#86) is out of print, and Ravelry does not show the pattern as available.
Would you be willing to share it with me, or tell me where I might locate the pattern or magazine?
Thank you for your consideration.
Hi! No problem at all! Could you give me your email address?
