Do you fancy a Saxon Slipover in unique hand-dyed yarn?
Helle from Mumilumi Knit was one of my testknitters when Saxon Slipover was under development this summer. She chose to knit in her own hand-dyed organic merino and silk mohair and the result was stunning! I simply had to knit one more for myself!
The green slipover here is my 3rd one, and I knit in colourways Aquarius (merino) and Shell (silk mohair).
Now Helle and I have put our heads together and made a unique selection of kits so that you can knit your own slipover in her luxury yarn!
The kit contains merino and silk mohair and a high-quality printed pattern booklet, and it can be purchased in several colourways on Mumilumi’s webshop. The pattern is on sale for 50 Danish kroners but is free when you buy a kit. You may also opt to have a digital (pdf) version of the pattern sent free of charge by email. In this case, the pdf will be sent via by Twisted Knitwear.
Twisted Knitwear X Mumilumi Knit
This collaboration between Twisted Knitwear and Mumilumi Knit arose from a shared passion for gorgeous knitting designs and luxury yarn.
The design was developed by Karen from Twisted Knitwear and the yarn is dyed in Helle’s home in Hellerup, which is north of Copenhagen in Denmark.
About Saxon Slipover
Saxon Slipover is a hip-length model that is designed to have a classic fit with approx. 5-10 cm of positive ease compared to your bust measurement. Measure your full bust circumference before beginning and choose the size that is 5 to 10 cm larger than your measurement.
The slipover is designed to have a scoop neck and the armholes should accommodate a light top, shirt or t-shirt underneath. The pattern includes 3 optional modifications to adjust slipover length, armhole depth and the extent to which the neckline dips at the front of the slipover.
Sometimes the small details make all the difference – in the slipover the transition from stocking stitch on the back to reverse stocking stitch on the front makes for a great fit whereby the slipover follows the body’s curves!
