My very first knit sweater

January 13, 2017


Hey loves and happy Friday! Yesterday we got back to Berlin from a super fun shooting with Marc O’Polo in the alps close to Munich, I’ll show you what we did later on :) I’m quite happy to be back in Berlin, although I miss everyone in Mallorca, but it’s just nice to be home, sleep in my own bed and most important, drink my own coffee! I can’t stand the coffee we have at home in Mallorca :P

Anyways, the reason of this blogpost is because I wanted to show you guys my new knit – which I made myself in the softest Merino wool! <3 I’m so happy! You know how much I love knits and I always wanted to make one myself, or to knit in general. I just never really knew how to do it, just did half a scarf when I was a kid. But when I went to Mallorca this Christmas I had planned with my mum to knit together, since she’s a pro ;) She made one, and I made one. I finished it last night, sew it together and voila!

It’s not perfect, but I love it anyways. The sleeves were WAY too big, because we couldn’t find a nice pattern so we just freestyled a bit, but it turned out how I wanted it anyways, except the too big sleeves… I already sew them in a lot, they were almost double as wide before! But yeah… I think I’ll continue, practice more and make in all different colours and some more fun techniques :) So fun and relaxing!

Now time for some Friday fun with friends, we’ll drink some Champagne to celebrate our 500k on Instagram! Yey!

Have an amazing weekend loves! xx Mikuta

Amazing look and such a great sweater especially for your first try! I think the big sleeves make the sweater more special and do look very cool! :)
Best regards

Big chunky sweaters are awesome for layering casual looks. What type of jacket would you go for over this big sweater?

I LOVE that sweater! I know you said the arms turned out bigger than you initially planned, but I think that’s the charm of creating anything yourself – you can end up with something unique and new. I think that’s the case here. I haven’t really seen a sweater like this in stores and that’s what makes this one so special.

Keep doing this, I would love to see what else you come up with xx

Gud va roligt! Jag stickade när jag var liten men började nu igen. Har redan hunnit både sticka och virka 5 halsdukar men nu ska jag ge mig på och sticka en tröja. Fick hem nya stickor idag som jag ska använda så nu väntar jag bara på garnet. Tycker din tröja blev så otroligt fin! Älskar de stora armarna :D
