Hiesu Sweater by Veera Välimäki


“Summer sun is high up in the sky, I feel the sand underneath my feet as I walk closer to the sea. I feel so grateful to see that blue surface today. I dip my toes and feel happy. So happy. Wave by wave the sea shifts. So does the sand beneath the water as it moves with the sea.

The Hiesu Sweater is designed to be your wonderful companion for the end of the summer days. It’s worked seamlessly from the top down, starting with the back. Then you will pick up the stitches for the shoulders and join for front and later for the lower body. The final touches are the collar and sleeve ribbings ending with a tubular bind-off.” – Veera Välimäki

We reccomend Sandnes Garn Alpakka for this design (design will call for 6 – 10 skeins, depending on size), although any DK yarn may  be used, such as Peer Gynt, Smart, Perfect, Merinoull or Duo. (If you would rather choose Alpakka colors that are not on sale, click here here).
