Riddari

Fun, fast, and beautiful yoke.

The pattern:
Easy! Everyone seems to be knitting Riddaris in my Instagram feed, and then I saw another parent with the pattern and wool kit (see through shopping bag!) under their pram in the local playground, and I had to make it myself.

The yarn:

Berrocco ultra alpaca, in moon shadow (body), black, white, and candied yam for the yoke. Did the contrast test on the colours a little late in the process, but they work well together.


Lovely and soft to knit with, it’s also now confirmed to be light and warm to wear. The colours were very well represented online, and I didn’t see it feel the yarn in person before buying but was not disappointed, quite the contrary.

The yarn also has nice stitch definition for such a light yarn, and came out very smooth:

The knitting:

Fast and fun. Started with the sleeves, one at a time. Body went very fast too, and the yoke was a lot of fun with a well written chart. I added two short rows across the back yoke to dip the front slightly.

And some yoke action!


The end result:

Instant favourite!
