In June, I knitted two pullovers: one was the Cloudbow Pullover, a design by Reed Keyes that is available in PomPom Magazine issue 40. The other is a pullover version of the Penguin Wing Cardigan (MIO). In this issue, I will talk about Cloudbow.
Cloudbow is a pullover made of fine mohair yarns knitted with thicker needles, and I used my yarns to make it colorful.
I knitted the size 9. I also worked the bust panel a little longer than specified on the pattern, and as I have long arms for my height, I added some extra rows to the sleeves than specified.
I used Mohair Silk by La Bien Aimée, Tussock by Purl Soho, Silk Mohair by Daruma, and BBQ by Amimono Spin. Personally, I liked the combination of Golden Lichen (yellowish color) and Anjou Pear (reddish salmon color) by Purl Soho.
This pull was so much easier than it looked, and I really enjoyed knitting it. It's been a while since I've genuinely enjoyed knitting like this, and I'd like to thank Reed, the designer, from the bottom of my heart. It was so much fun that I even stayed up late into the night knitting.
By the way, Cloudbow includes a dress version in the pattern, so I have a plan to knit a dress using brown mohair. I am looking forward to it.
100% recommend this pattern, so please check it out😉
