A while ago I was in a quandary about what to cast on next. I had so many things I wanted to knit! And a good stash of yarn to knit from – so I asked you to tell me where to start.

It was a draw between Buttrick by Martin Storey and Mazarin by Kim Hargreaves. Thanks for helping me to narrow it down! As you’ve probably guessed from the blog title – I decided to start with Buttrick.

It’s a wide fitting jumper with a lot of cable and fisherman’s rib sleeves. So, even though Hemp Tweed is aran (ish) – it wasn’t super quick to knit. But definitely worth it!

I loved knitting with hemp tweed and it’s equally lovely to wear. It’s unbelievably warm & cosy so I’m disappointed that I didn’t have it ready earlier – but I heard a rumour we’re getting more snow at Easter… so I know what I’ll be wearing!
