TFA Tuesday - Sople Pattern by Lete's Knits

sople1
Top Tier Knitter/Designer: Justyna Lorkowska aka Lete's Knits (blog)
Pattern: Sople by Justyna herself!
Yarn: TFA Yellow Label DK Weight Yarn in Frost

A little while back, Justyna sent me a bunch of sketches and asked me to pick my favourite and in turn she would turn said sketch into a beautiful knitting pattern featuring my yarn! I picked my fave, a sketch for a lovely cardigan with the most awesome cable details all over. We chatted yarns, again, I suggested my favourite colour and Justyna was game. She sent me updates about the design throughout, let me know how things were coming along, so you'd think I would have been prepared for how gorgeous this finished knit is, but when the photo's of the final product showed up in my inbox, I was floored!

The shoulder details, the hem and cuff details and then that stunning back panel! I love seeing all that attention to detail. This is the type of knit that I was just saying I was missing from my collection. A lighter weight (not aran weight!) cardigan that I could layer over just about anything. 

Justyna has several designs that fit the bill actually, I've been eyeing her Shifting pattern for some time, I would live in that sweater! Check out her Ravelry pattern's page, it's worth it!
