Karen, aka Knittywarbler on Ravelry & Instagram, has knitted this gorgeous version of Suli for her friend Lizzy who is modelling it together with her horse Ty. This is one of many designs that Karen has test knitted for me, and I am so grateful that she is one of my skilled test knitters. Lizzy’s Suli is knitted in the divine semi-solid hand-dyed SweetGeorgia Yarns, Cashluxe Fine in the shade Bluebird using a 3 mm/US 2.5 needle, in size Medium. It is one of those yarn I would love to test myself. Karen is retired and lives with her husband in Easton, Maryland, US. She has been knitting for more than 55 years, so Karen is an eagle-eyed test knitter! I will share more of her projects and stunning photos! Thank you so much, Karen!
The loop collar can be worn in several different ways, and above it is worn an extra time around the neck. Karen knits for her granddaughter in addition to Lizzy and herself. It was fun to hear that Lizzy is not used to having knitwear made for her so she was looking forward to wearing this jacket which suits her so well!
Last, is the back view of the lovely Lizzy in the stables. The jacket Suli was designed for Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk and the sample was knitted in Sølje Pelsullgarn/Pelt wool yarn. It is available in sizes XS to 2XL, with a bust circumference of 86 to 126 cm/33.75 to 49.5″. The pattern is available in English and in Norwegian from Ravelry and from Loveknitting.
