Kobolt by Sarah Solomon was designed for a Woolfolk Merino/cotton yarn, but I’ve knitted it up in my Blue faced Chunky yarn in Olive. I really like Sarah Solomon’s designs and I’ve a couple waiting in my project queue. I’m a 34″ chest and I knitted the 2nd size. I had to go down a needle size to obtain the correct gauge and the jumper has ended up slightly smaller than the pattern. I’ve short arms and hate over-long sleeves, so I knitted them a bit shorter than described in the pattern. The design is knitted flat in pieces, in a traditional bottom-up manner with a slip-stitch selvedge to make sewing up neater. I particularly like the wide turtleneck and the raglan shaping. As it’s a chunky yarn, the jumper knitted up really quickly.

The jumper took 7 100g skeins of my Chunky yarn.
