more cozy, easy knitting

I love the look of Blythe-scale knitting. Usually I like to use lace weight yarn and size 0 needles, as that gives a really tiny stitch that looks accurate for Blythe-scale. However, knitting with lace weight yarn and such small needles means that those projects take a little more time. Sometimes, I want to knit a Blythe sweater and be done quickly, which is when I reach for a slightly thicker yarn and larger needle – in this case fingering weight yarn and size 2 needles.

This size yarn still makes quite a small stitch, which I think keeps in Blythe-scale nicely. The stitches aren’t that much larger than in lace weight yarn, but the time required to knit this sweater is much less than one made with lace weight!

I tend to like a roomy fit for Blythe sweaters. I feel like it’s comfy and cozy and allows for layering or wearing the sweater cardigan-style when desired (I love layers! both for me and for Blythe).

I’m so pleased with how well this brown sweater goes with this skirt I made last year. 🙂
