Love Note - knitted in Rowan Alpaca Classic.
Love Note, designed by Tin Can Knits, is knitted in the round from the top down. The original pattern uses two strands of yarn held together - a 4ply and a laceweight mohair.
Sized from baby to adult, this pattern recommends a fit of 4” - 12” of positive ease.
Our version uses one strand of Alpaca Classic, a DK blend of alpaca and cotton. We used shade 102. The alpaca gives a lovely halo, and it’s an economical choice with a luxurious effect.
The pattern gives two lengths - both quite cropped! But it's easy to add more length. Because it is knitted top down you can try it on whilst you're making it - to get the length you want.
The neckline is also finished at the end... so if you'd rather it was lower and looser you can do that too.
The pattern is available to buy on Ravelry.
Edited to add: Tin Can Knits have put together a step by step guide to knitting a Love Note. You can see all the details on their website. Perfect for those who are nervous of knitting top down sweaters, not sure of a lace yoke or maybe need help choosing a size! Well worth a look!
