Berta T-Sweater

The Berta T-sweater is  a light weight, easy wear top. The sleeves are worked along with the body.  This inclusively sized top, has a 2-inch ease. It is worked in two easy pieces from the bottom up. It is then seamed at the sides and shoulders. It is the perfect top for any season and for any reason. It all starts with an idea or the yarn. First, I bought 3 skeins of Blackcat Fibers in their Labradorite color way. Once I had one of the skeins wound I stitched up my swatch, washed and blocked it. Then sat down to sketch out the design and worked up the math. Then once I formulated my plan for the design, I wound up the other 2 skeins. And each one was visually the same but different.

So I started my sweater with the darkest one and shifted the colors to the lightest at the top. I really like the effect it created.

Then for my next Berta T-Sweater sample, I had 3 skeins of Fairy Tale Yarns in Pegagus. The 3 colors bein; We’re All Mad Here, Dancing Mushroom Fairy and Down the Rabbit Hole. On this version, I alternated each color per row and it created a beautiful striping effect.

And then one more Berta T-Sweater sample with OMG Yarns Balls in Edelweiss fingering in Maleficent. I again alternated rows with each ball. And it created this zigzag art effect.

Thank you so much for your love and support!
