After the great success of the Feinmotorik’s El Diamante Shawl, we are back with a new Premium Designers pattern. If you want to discover independent designers from all over Europe, in this space we share unique designs and exclusive patterns. Learn everything about what inspires these creative minds and let yourself be carried away by the passion for knitting of creators like Valentinasknits. We are very happy to have this talented designer with us again. This time, Valentina Bogdanova has turned our Concept by Katia yarn Ultralight Merino yarn into the Aguacero Sweater. Without a doubt, a beautiful top-down sweater with a round yoke ideal for knitting on rainy days.
Top-Down Seamless Jumper
The pattern on the yoke section of this jumper reminds me of leaves that fall on moist autumnal soil. Those leaves submerged in puddles full of ripples created by the rain. That’s why I have called this jumper Aguacero (which means heavy rainfall in Spanish). This is a top-down seamless jumper, so you start with the neckline and work downwards. The yoke section is made up of an interesting combination of cables and eyelet stitches; whilst the rest of the jumper is knitted in simple stockinette. It is not necessary to knit two colours at the same time across the coloured section. This broken stripe effect is easy to knit by slipping the stitches.
Valentina has been knitting since she was 5 years old. Consequently, it has become a true vocation over time. “Knitting helps to relax my mind after a busy day at work. Furthermore, it allows me to be creative and express everything I feel”. Her favourite models are her two daughters, and as a result they can often be seen on her Instagram account wearing her awesome knit sweaters and jackets. Here is where you can truly marvel at the elegant and sophistication of Valentina’s designs. So if you also share the same passion for knitting quality pieces using yarns made from noble fibers, we invite you to follow her.
