checkered spencer - knitting pattern
N E W in the Etsy shop: CHECKERED SPENCER knitting pattern!
The woolen spencer has been out of fashion for a long time, but it actually is a great piece for fall and winter. You can easily combine it with anything. Wear it over a t-shirt with long sleeves or under a jacket or cardigan. It's perfect with a skirt, but can also be combined with pants.
Preferably wear it with a tartan item, everything is possible, the crazier the better...
The spencer with my favorite harlequins is an easy to follow knitting pattern.
This knitted checkered spencer is knitted in one piece.
For this spencer I've used tweed yarn in dusky pink and dark green. You can buy the tweed yarn for example at the Dutch textile super brand Zeeman and it's one of my favorite yarns. It's machine washable, super soft and comfortable to wear.
You can download the SPENCER PATTERN in my Etsy shop. Available in English and Dutch version.
Knitting season has started...
