Recently I was lucky enough to be a test knitter for the Stellar Sailor Dickey pattern by Paul Haesemeyer. It’s definitely one I would recommend as a good weekend project – as long as you’re comfortable with charted cables, this is a pretty quick knit!
I worked mine up using my favorite yarn – Joann’s Big Twist. I did deviate just a touch by adding in some store bought pompoms instead of making my own, but the color was a perfect match! How could I resist?
One of the things that I really like about this piece is that it tucks in really smoothly. Wearing it outside a coat or jacket really shows off the cables, but wearing it tucked in does an incredible job of shielding from wind and snow. I’ve actually already started on a second one in brown, which is going to go to my roommate.
If you haven’t already, be sure to head on over to Paul Haesemeyer’s ravelry page to check out his patterns!
