Asymmetrical Ellis sweater from Fibre Mood

There is a new Fibre Mood* released and I got to sew a great sweater from it, the Ellis sweater. The Ellis sweater is very quick sew but stands out because of the split neckband and waistband, such a fun detail! And of course the diagonal colour block is right up my alley.


Our girl picked out the fabric herself, at least the fireworks fabric. I picked out the matching fabric. The print works well with the large piece. The sweater is a bit roomy, that is because there is a size 6 and a size 8 and she doesn't fit in the size 6, but the size 8 is still a bit big on her. Well she can grow into it.
At textielstad I bought a couple of multicolour threads. I felt this was the perfect project to try it out and indeed it matches the colours in the sweater very well.
