.Me Made May pt. 4.

Me Made May got a bit harder last week as the temperature soared to almost 30 degrees C. At least the mornings were a still a bit chilly so that I could wear a woollen jumper on my way to work. But no more hats or mittens for a while.

Friday I wore my Stone cutter sweater.

I had to work on Saturday so I took my Haruni scarf with me.

On Sunday I wore an alpaca cardigan I knit a couple of years ago.

I wore my Buttercream cowl on Monday.

This was my Tuesday morning outfit, but by the time I got home from work, it was way too hot to wear it. Keiko sweater and Lin-lin shawl.

Wednesday morning outfit, I made the cardigan couple of years ago, it's one of my favourites. By noon I had ditched it and wore only a t-shirt: another hot day. 

Again, morning outfits, Thursday and Pine Bough Cowl.

Friday nights going to the exhibition opening party at the museum. My Roman Holiday bolero.

Saturday night chilling and cheering the Finnish ice-hockey team to win. Phloem socks (and knitting the finishing touches to the Dessine-moi sweater).

Yay, it's finished. Sunday and my brand new Dessine-moi Un Mouton.


  1. Hi Sari,

    I just discovered your blog because I saw on Ravelry that you knitted Ondawa, which I'm knitting right now. Love your posts and the projects you make, thanks for the inspiration! In fell in love with quite a few of your suggested projects, but mostly with the beige/brown/orange cardigan you are wearing in this post. Can you tell me where I can find the pattern? Can't wait to cast it on! Also, do you remember which yarn you used? I see you use Drops yarns a lot, so do I.

    Thanks in advance for your response, much appreciated! Good luck with your blog! Greetings from Eindhoven, Netherlands.


    1. Hi!
      I'm sorry to tell you that there is no pattern for the cardigan. It was something I made up as I knitted. I can tell you it's just a regular straight cardigan with raglan sleeves. I knitted it in the round and made a steek to the front which I then cut open and made a few cms of ribbing to the fronts. There are no buttons. I used Drops Alpaca for it, if I remember right the shades were #302 camel, #403 brown, #100 off-white, and #2915 orange.

      I'm sorry I can't help you more, but maybe these instructions will help you and make it easier for you to knit your own! There is a pattern that I think has a similar feel to this one, if you want to check it out:

    2. Thanks, this definitely helps. I don't know if I can pull something like this off, but I might try :-) Cool that you can design a pattern like this!

Salut Chéri! Beret Pattern.

Here is the pattern for the berets I've knitted. The name for the beret is from the t-shirt I was wearing when I took the project photos of the first beret for Ravelry. I thought the name suited the beret, since it's quite classical take on the hat that has become the icon of everything French. Happy knitting!

Cloud Mittens - the Pattern part 1.

(By Far) The Easiest Way to K4Tog.

I have published earlier a post on an easy way to k4tog - knit 4 stitches together - which is an essential stitch in my Cloud mitten pattern. As you might already know it is a bit challenging especially with 2.5 mm bamboo needles that not only have sharp tips but are bendy and especially prone to snapping. Stubborn as I am, I wasn't going to give up and change the design just to make it easier to knit. So I came up with the idea of using a tiny crochet hook to pull the working stitch through other three. 
I was planning to use this same method when knitting the second pair of Cloud mittens, but alas, I couldn't find the hook anywhere. I seem to have misplaced it and I just can't remember where I put it... And as you know I don't crochet often so the second smallest hook I had was size 3.5 mm which didn't work for this purpose for obvious reasons. 
So I was back to square one trying to figure out how to do the k4tog in an easy way when I got the idea of reversing t…
