January’s swatch of the month is a seed stitch swatch knit in KnitPick’s Wool of the Andes Worsted in the Garnet Heather colorway. Wool of the Andes is a great power house yarn it’s 100% Peruvian Highland Wool. It is available in both superwash and non-superwash, dyed and undyed across several yarn weights. Wool of the Andes is certainly one of my go to sweater yarns.
I knit this swatch in a single seed stitch pattern on US size 7 4.5mm needles. I love the way the heathered yarn has knit up in this stitch pattern and the deep burgundy color is one of my favorites.
This sweater was a Christmas present for my dad. It is an original design that I am hoping to have out to test knitters by the end of January so stay tuned for updates on that. Let me know about your latest swatch in the comments below.
