Robin pullover

8:47 AM


You always need a project that you can work on while reading something and Helga Isager's Robin is a very good option for that: endless stockinette in lace weight yarn provides plenty of reading opportunities. Starting with the decorated panels is interesting, then you need some patience to pick up more than 300 sts on each side of the panels, but once you get that done it's stockinette with only a couple of decreases along the way. The result is lovely and Isager Spinni is a great yarn to work with.



Pattern: Robin by Helga Isager
Yarn: Isager Spinni in colorway 8 S (195 g)
Needles: 2.5 and 3 mm

If you are planning on knitting Robin, please note the yardage. The instructions say that you need 200 (250) 300 g for size S (M) L, but even with added length to the bottom in size L still only consumed less than 200 g of yarn. Good thing is that I love the yarn and I might have some left overs from my other Helga Isager projects, so there's a good chance that I'll find use for the yarn. Ok, let's admit it: I already have a design for the left over yarns. Only need to finish my other projects to see if I have enough yarn left.





Mit diesem Posting kann ich das erste Mal bei RUMS (Rund ums Weib am Donnerstag) mitmachen!

  1. It's gorgeous! And looks brilliant on you! Love the pics too :)

    Robin is definitely in my knitting queue, but this information about picking up the stitches - again - terrifies me some :D

    1. Thank you. Well, you managed with Lemon, didn't you? With this one you only need to pick up the stitches once, so it's only half of what you had to do with Lemon ;)

  4. Ostin langat (200g Spinniä) Lemoniin, mutta toi Robin on ruvennu kovin houkuttaan :) Oonkin miettinyt juuri langan riittävyyttä, mutta pitäis siis riittää M/L-kokoon?

    1. Molemmat on kyllä kivoja malleja, mutta Robin ehkä käyttökelpoisempi kun kesällä lyhythihainenkin villaneule kuitenkin on vähän turhan lämmin. Vaikka olisikin ihana Lemon :) Mulla tohon L-koon Robiniin en saanut ihan kahta vyyhtiä uppoamaan vaikka pidensin helmaa, joten pitäisi kyllä riittää.
