After finishing my own Silver Forest, I thought it would be fun to offer a kit for you to knit your own too!  The Silver Forest was designed for Brooklyn Tweed yarn, but I knitted mine with Jamieson & Smith Supreme which is a wonderful yarn.  Just be sure to swatch so you can take your own tension and change of yarn into account.  

This Kit Includes:

  • All J&S Yarn needed to knit your chosen size (Please note sizes offered are bust measurements for the finished garment.)
  • Large Woolly Thistle project tote
  • Stitch Marker - selection varies
MC: 2003
CC1: 2005
CC2: 2001
CC3: 2009

 

Please note the pattern is NOT included in this yarn set, but can be purchased from the designer on Ravelry: Silver Forest by Jennifer Steingass

Pattern description from Ravelry:

Construction:
This seamless, circular yoke sweater sweater knit in the round is a top down hybrid. Designed to have a relaxed fit with 2-5” of positive ease at bust. You can choose between 3 options for body shaping: Subtle hourglass shaping, straight body, or a-line, and there are 2 options for neckline styles: ribbed or rolled neckline. The knitting starts with a provisional cast on with waste yarn using a simple long tail cast on. No additional skills are needed for this method (called COWYAK) and the transition between the directions in knitting is completely invisible. The stranded yoke is worked and then the neckline is bound off. Next, the body and sleeves are worked top down from. With this method of construction, the sweater has live stitches at the neckline and edges of the body and sleeve cuffs. This makes for easy customization of body and sleeve lengths and neckline width.

Finished Measurements:
Bust circumference: 34.75 (38.5, 42.5, 46.5, 50.5, 54.5)” / 86.5 (96.5, 106, 116.5, 126, 136.5) cm
Sizes listed are actual finished sweater measurements. Choose a size with recommended ease of 2-5”
/ 5-12.5 cm larger than your actual bust measurement. Shown with 3” / 7.5 cm ease. Additional measurements in schematic on page 10.

Gauge
Colorwork: 27 sts and 36 rnds = 4 inches / 10 cm in stockinette st, in the round, after blocking.
Body: 27 sts and 40 rnds = 4 inches / 10 cm in stockinette st, in the round, after blocking.

Love the yarn

This kit comes with the Shetland Surpreme Jumper Weight Yarn. Lovely to knit with. I found I needed to go up a needle size after I did my gauge, but that may only have to do with my own tension. The patten starts with a provisional cast on and then starts the knitting in the center yoke section. I've never done a pattern this way before. It's always fun to learn something new. Just getting through the first two inches or so of the yoke. It's an easy pattern to follow. The kit takes the guess work out of it all. Quick shipping, great service. Thanks Woolly Thistle!

Love this kit. Takes the guesswork out of what yarn to use with the pattern. Love Marie Wallin patterns,and as I live in America it’s not easy to find the right yarn. Would recommend this to beginners and anyone who loves colorwork.
