Boardwalk Blouse - bonus dog

That's such a cute blouse, thanks for making me aware of the pattern! I would have never thought of using a crazy teal color like this, but with the pink it's a perfect look-at-and-be-happy combination.

What’s funny is I’ve had the teal yarn for a while, grabbed it out of a sale bin and then regretted buying it because I couldn’t figure out how I’d ever use it besides a random pair of socks or something. Then when I was going through my stash with this pattern in mind I remembered the pink yarn (local dyer near me so I keep a lot of her colors in mind lol) and remembered the teal speckles and thought it could work. I thought the teal speckles would pop a little more but they don’t unless you’re close up, but I do really think it works!! :)

I love that you keep your local dyers colors "in mind" I'm always keeping all the colors "in stash" which is quite overwhelming!


casualknits

Hahahaha it’s like 50/50 in mind/in stash :)


tillyfromnowherenow

I feel that sooo much!

Pattern is Boardwalk Blouse by Poison Grrls. Pink yarn is Museum of Play by Megs Yarn & Co, Teal is Breeze by Spun Right Round. This pattern has been in my queue for ages! So excited to wear it around this summer :)


TrueCrimey

Very pretty. Good job!

Great color combo and perfect fit. Now I wanna make one just like it. Adding to the already lengthy queue...


casualknits

Do it! Let’s have matching shirts!! Haha. I made between a s/m, they add instructions for how to alter sizes. Also if you follow pattern designers instagrams or join email newsletters they have pattern sales every so often


anon-good-nurse

Thanks for the tip. I don't think I've followed them yet, but I do like a number of their patterns. I have some fingering weight yarn in a similar color to that blue/teal.

This is awesome! Love the color choices.

Beautifully done! Awesome work and the yarns and colours sing together, no wonder you have a lovely canine admirer, you look wonderful in it, great work!


casualknits

Thank you so much! I was afraid of this pattern for a while because of the tight gauge, I use sock yarn a lot but usually with bigger needles. This used a 2! But it wasn’t bad at all. Actually my current project which is dk yarn but a cotton blend is hurting me more than then tiny gauge with wool.


koalaposse

Going to look up what a ‘2’ is in mm, but looks stunning. Am even more impressed as I can only really make socks as yet and haven’t tried other garments, but this is awesome. I love the look of fine knits with small needles, they always look more together, chic and professional somehow, and that fact you did this without too much pain is a testimony to your talents, and perhaps you just work naturally better with smaller needles.. everyone has their thing! I love the yarn name you chose and you have a great colour sensibility. Enjoy!


casualknits

2.75 mm! Thanks <3 things do look really chic with the small yarn and needles but they take so much longer haha but it’s worth it once in a while. I have only made 2 pairs of socks and they were fun but I don’t have the sock addiction others have... yet haha maybe if I run out of sweater ideas I’ll go down the sock rabbit hole :)


koalaposse

Oh thanks, good to know! 2.75 mm is a favourite size, it makes a beautiful fabric and 2.75 needles feel nice to work with even if takes ages to make things! Go well with your lovely work, cheers!

Also, I’ve been considering making this pattern for awhile, and your project has officially sold me. Thank you!


casualknits

I recommend :) it’s a different silhouette and neckline than many other knit tops which I liked!
