What to Make: The Daily sweater by Andrea Mowry

Welcome to our weekly feature, What to Make Wednesday! The yarns here at Ewe Ewe are so versatile and I love to share ideas about what you can knit with them.

Ewe Ewe designer and my favorite person, Meaghan Schmaltz just finished knitting her own The Daily sweater by Andrea Mowry using Baa Baa Bulky Merino yarn. Isn’t it awesome?!

I think it looks great.

Andrea’s sweater has a pretty, muted feel but you know how I love saturated colors. Here’s a peek at the lovely original modeled by the designer herself.

Meaghan is Andrea’s tech editor (I know, what a job, right?!) and when she saw The Daily slide across her desk she thought it was so great that she leapt at the chance to test knit the new design!

I have to say, I agree with Meaghan! I think this sweater looks incredibly wonderful to wear.

Meaghan choose Ewe Ewe Baa Baa Bulky as her yarn for this project and she got gauge perfectly on a Size 10 needle. She used the colors Black Licorice and Wheat to make a great basic for her closet.

We have 17 colors in Baa Baa Bulky now which means there are so many options to make this amazing sweater! I’ve put together a few ideas here. Take a look!

I love that Saffron and Brushed Silver combo to wear with jeans.

What if we choose some color with color? You could do our rich Teal with Soft Sage for a green tone. Then I was thinking of Cotton Candy and Orange Peel together because I did it in this baby sweater and I kinda want to wear it myself!

You could add some Indigo to your Wheat. Or maybe you’re thinking a bit of a spring fling is in order — wouldn’t Aquamarine and Sky Blue be so cheery? Yes!

Color mixing is so fun and here at Ewe Ewe we plan all the colors to work together so go ahead and give it a try for yourself. If you have a question about which colors you might like you can always email me and we can figure it out!
