Photos of the Kauni top down raglan

Pattern: My own improvised version of a top-down raglan.
Yarn: Effektgarn from Kauni and a brown 2-ply wool yarn that was left over from another sweater.
Needles: 4,5 mm circs and 3,5 mm dpns

New Clapotis

I've started on a new Clapotis. I'm useing Kauni Effektgarn this time as well, but in the colours light gray, dark gray and bright orange. I think I will add a few more of the straight rows to make it a bit longer this time.

What can I say it's cold outside

This is a small Shedir cap that I made with only seven repeats (cast on 112 sts), six rib rows and I skiped a few of the rows in the end (row 70, 73, and 76).
I've also been working on my Kauni raglan sweater, but I don't have any new photos to show.

even more hats

Pattern: Odessa from Magknits by Grumperina
Yarn: Baby Chashmerino from Debbie Bliss
Needles: 3,5 mm 40 cm circ. and 3,5 dpns
This was a really fun knit. Lovely easy to remember pattern and the yarn was soft and nice to knit with. I made it too small though. I followed the pattern and started the decrease after 14 cm and that was too soon. Next time I'll knit at least 18 cm.
This was my very first bead project. I will definitely knit more Odessas.

Pattern: Squirrely Swedish Mittens from Elli Stubenrauch at Elliphantom Knits.
Yarn: Garnstudio's Fabel

This is the hardest thing for me when it comes to knitting. I can't seem to get the right tension on the yarn. I hope it look better after blocking.
