In our opinion here at Spincycle Yarns, everything that Zanete designs is just exquisite. Her eye for color and colorwork just has us swooning every time. Her newest design uses our brand new marled worsted weight TRINE, in combination with Dream State in everyone's favorite colorway, which lended the sweater its name: MELANHOLIJA in Latvian, and Melancholia as we know it. 

About the sweater, in Zanete's own words: As knitting is a great way to sit still and connect with your inner self, it has always been my go-to when I need to process emotions. All, even the not-so-nice ones, are valid, and we need to experience them before moving on. 

 Melancholia sweater lets you create your own particular emotion. It is a unique and beautiful knitting pattern you have never seen! If you're looking for something special to knit this winter, look no further - the Melancholia Sweater Pattern is exactly what you need.

 The asymmetric colourwork will add subtle sophistication to your wardrobe while allowing you to express your personality. No matter what colours you choose in this pattern, they will come together beautifully and make an eye-catching piece. Who knew truly unique designs could be so easy?
