Flax – pull over sweater from the simple collection

I finished the flax pull over sweater this winter, and loved how easy the pattern was and the results. I highly recommend this project for anyone making their first sweater. It was a free pattern from Tin Can Knits, in their Simple Collection.The yarn used was Wool of the Andes Tweed, worsted weight, from Knit Picks. I made the 4 year old size, for my nephew (who is a big 2 year old ;) ).

  1. That is really nice! Of course, I pulled up the post thinking I was going to see a pullover knit FROM flax! Hee hee! I just read an article on how to spin flax into linen, and that is what automatically popped into my head. Don’t you LOVE Wool of the Andes? I use it all the time. So soft and strong and wonderful.

    • Thanks! It would be interesting to see how to spin flax into linen :).
      It is really beautiful wool – yes. I have been very happy with almost all of the knit picks yarns I’ve purchased.
