I absolutely LOVE Bamboo Pop by Universal Yarns, however, a cotton/bamboo yarn doesn’t have the spring as a wool yarn. Originally, I wanted to put in pleats and ribbing. Not a good idea with a cotton yarn. So, once again, I ripped out the project and started again. This time, I listened to what the yarn wanted me to do with it instead of the other way around.
So, here is the result. The yarn drapes beautifully, so I made it a little oversized. In the body of the sweater, the diamond pattern made for an interesting texture. The triangular trim on the bottom and sleeves was a fun detail and a good way around having ribbing. I tried to recreate the triangular pattern around the neckline using crochet.
I’m currently working on the pattern to put on Ravelry. Given how long it took me to create a pattern with this yarn, I think I’m just going to sit back and enjoy it now that Spring is here and I can finally wear it 🙂
