Elaine Brody’s little sweater is a quick and easy knit. She worked the sweater in reverse stockinette stitch because she liked the way the purl side highlighted the nubbly texture of the yarn. The hat is knitted in the round with the knit side outbecause, says Elaine, it’s easier for her to knit than purl. When the hat was complete, she turned it inside out to match the sweater. Then she topped the hat with a little flower-type motif worked by casting on and then binding off stitches to form five petal-like loops. See The Stitches section below for detailed instructions.
Our model, Rye, loved our Sprout sweater and went to work immediately styling an outfit to go with it. We think she did a great job on her layers. Don’t you?
100% organic cotton
Sprout is a chunky yarn spun from 100% organic cotton. The yarn is formed by wrapping a thin thread around a soft, lightly spun cotton roving. The thick ply allows the cotton to knit up at a 3½ stitches to the inch, and the thin ply keeps the yarn strong and stable. The unusual structure of the yarn gives the yarn a slight, even texture and keeps it light, soft, and lofty. Sprout comes in 12 bright and lively colors, andgreat newsit’s machine washable.
The Sprout hat has a great little flower sewn on to the top, this addition is worked by casting on and then binding off stitches to form five “petals.”
