Verum is as fun to knit as it is eye-catching to wear. Stripes and short rows combine to create the unusual shape, and make Verum the perfect playground for imaginative colour combinations.

Knitting for me is all about experimenting, trying new things, rediscovering old stuff and mixing everything together to create something completely new and unique. You never run out of ideas or possiblities once you have started thinking about yarn and needles like that.
I also like a challenge when I knit. I enjoy immensely to have an idea and to think: Yes, this would be nice but it´s impossible to do. - Then I find a way to do it.
It is just amazing to me that I can write down my ideas at home, upload them here on Makerist and so instantly share them with other knitters all around the world.
