Ahh, the weather is starting to turn. Now is the perfect time to whip up a basic tee for spring and summer.

Silver Springs by Robin Knits seems like the perfect option!

The Silver Springs tee is knit from the top down and has cascading eyelets around the body. This seamless yoke design is knit using fingering weight yarn and I think Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering Merino would be just perfect!

The colors of Fluffy Fingering yarn are perfect for this type of knitting project. Choose a nice neutral like Brushed Silver, Wheat, Vanilla or Sky Blue and you could wear this tank with ANYTHING in your closet.

Look at all the texture on this cowl!

Split the Distance is a knitting pattern that creates big arrows with just a change in knits or purls.

Such a cool effect.

The Weekender is a worsted-weight pullover sweater pattern designed by Andrea Mowry of Drea Renee Knits. I love all of the details this sweater has like faux seams and a modern drop shoulder with a super-comfy relaxed fit. This sweater would knit up beautifully in our Wooly Worsted merino yarn! I've planned out the details below.

This sweater would look so pretty in Brushed Silver or maybe our earthy new Forest Fern. It would also be stunning in Red Velvet or you could go a bit brighter with rich Saffron. They’re all so perfectly fall!

If you have any questions about choosing a color you can always send me an email. Happy knitting!


Additional idea!

It’s been a few days since I wrote the original post about knitting The Weekender in Wooly Worsted and in the meantime I thought — what if we knit it in Fluffy Fingering with 2 strands held together for a marl effect? What if?!

Using Fluffy Fingering is a good idea for a couple of reasons!

  1. Two strands held together equals the gauge of worsted weight yarn.

  2. We can get the lovely tweedy marl effect that the original sweater has.

Look at all that texture! It really gives the sweater a lot of character. I got thinking about what colors of Fluffy Fingering would work together to create a beautiful, earthy, fall feel. Here are a few ideas I came up with.

I think I’m going to knit one using Wheat and Forest Fern! I’ve been really into greens this season and I think it would work up in such a cool way. Which one do you like? Take a look at the Fluffy Fingering yarn page to see all of the colors and develop your own marl!

Fluffy Fingering yarn amounts

The skein count will be different if you decide to marl the sweater than just knit it with Wooly Worsted. Here’s what I calculated:

Sizes: XS (S, M, L)XL, XXL, XXXL

Yarn: 915 (1015, 1130, 1265)1385, 1520, 1640 yds

Fluffy Fingering skeins: 5 (6, 6, 7)7, 8, 9 skeins each of Colors A and B for a total of 10 (12, 12, 14)14, 16, 18 skeins.

Are you in? Do you want to knit The Weekender with me?

Yay! This will be a more informal knit-with-me rather than an instructional knit-along. I’ll be posting updates in my Ravelry forum. Leave a comment there or below to let me know you’d like to knit it, too. I will get started on mine on Monday, October 1st.

Shop Fluffy Fingering yarn on this website OR better yet find a local yarn store that carries Ewe Ewe.

If you have any questions about choosing a color you can always send me an email. Happy knitting!
