I NEVER thought I’d knit a SWEATER!! But we accepted teh challenge with my friend Elise from the blog “Au fil de Lili” ( You can find her article (in french) on her experience of the Kinesis Sweater here). In Collaboration with We Are Knitters and we LOVED the experience!
I really appreciated knitting this Kinesis Sweater, the needles are pretty big so honestly it goes pretty fast! And with the color changes you have the impression of really seeing your work grow
I shared parts of my progress on Instagram so here it is:
Il faisait 40 degrés en début de semaine… Et aujourd'hui il fait assez frais pour que j'ai envie de commencer mon nouveau tricot @weareknitters !! Je tricote cette fois ci en même temps que ma copine @aufildelili ! Qui terminera son pull en premier ? mais surtout qui aura la température la plus froide en premier pour le porter… Montreal 🇨🇦 ou Bruxelles 🇧🇪 ? (perso je vote Bruxelles 😉)
I left it unassembled for a while, All the pieces were done but I couldn’t find the courage to assemble it. It wasn’t so hard in the end !! I had a bit of a hard time with the collar, I never got the right number of stitches so I ended up improvising and it turned out fine!
It’s biggest fault is that it’s really short!!
So I encourage you to :
- Make it a size bigger than you would usually make it. I made a size Small and would have preferred a size medium
- Add a few lines in order to make it longer (Do the same thing on the back and front to make sure everything stays symmetrical)
- The sleeves and 3/4, if I had realized I would have maybe made them longer
But I LOVE the colors I chose (Natural, pearl grey and wine), the yarn it amazingly soft and the explanations pretty clear combined with their video explanations and bit of youtube!
Here are some picture of the finished Kinesis Sweater, like I said it’s pretty short so I wear it with a dress so I don’t end up looking like Winnie the Pooh when I raise my arms ?
