Yes. I was up way too late last night obsessing over that yoked pullover of Hermione‘s. I spent a lot of time looking at some of the great links people provided and researching yarn, again beginning with a suggestion from the comments. After dinner tonight, I broke out the colored pencils.
And I started charting the colorwork. I’ve since moved to Excel, where I can copy, paste, and see the repeat quickly. Only once I swatch will I really get a feel for how this will look. And I can’t swatch until I get some yarn, right?
My current choice for yarn is Karabella Aurora 4–from the name alone it’s appropriately Harry Potterish. I will try to find the time to get over to School Products (home of Karabella) this week to look at the yarn and think about colors (do I go with Hermione’s brown and tan? Or brown and something else? The white is most definitely my favorite part, so that stays). I expect to be knee-deep in this one by the weekend, if possible!
I plan to provide this pattern when it’s ready, if it works. (Likely for a small fee.)
It’s the birth of the Auror Pullover.
