Stitch Exchange: The Twigs Sweater + AVFKW Flock Yarn

One day, I was cruising through the internet and was stopped in my tracks by a beautiful, curious sweater; oversized, bell-shaped, with delicate motifs. As I looked more closely, I learned the name of the sweater: The Twigs by Junko Okamoto. The moment I saw it, I knew I wanted to knit one.

ABOUT THE PATTERN: This sweater comes in one size. The main color requires 5 skeins. The contrasting color requires 2 skeins. Please purchase the pattern directly from Junko. 

A Verb for Keeping Warm Flock
100% Organic California Merino
50g / 290 yards 
fingering weight

I used 5 skeins of A Verb for Keeping Warm Flock in Grizzly Peak. For the contrast color, I used 1 skein of Granite, and 1 skein of Cumulus. I created Cumulus especially for this design as I desired a hint of indigo blue every so often. So used the skein of Cumulus intermittently. Using only intuition.

We just received a new batch of Flock - all made from farmer Sally Fox's locally-grown, organic Merino. To create your own collection of colors, please visit our page dedicated to Flock. If you would like help, please give us a call!

The original pattern calls for Moeke Yarns Elena. Due to the limited quantity of this yarn, and the fact that we are sold out of this year's batch, I went ahead and made a version out of Flock. We look forward to receiving the new batch of Moeke. If you would like to be notified of its arrival, please get in touch.

Flock is lighter weight than Moeke Elena, so I used smaller needles, and doing so made a smaller sweater. Please see my Ravelry project page for more information.
