Shifting Set

I love the gradated yarn sets that Erica at ColorShift Yarn (https://www.etsy.com/shop/colorshiftyarn) has been dyeing up! I chose this one for my first project(s) named Shifting Set.

It is one of her Color Bridge Yarn Sets in the Blue to Gray colorway.

And here is how it knits up-

The Rhinebeck Sweater

I am so absolutely thrilled to be included in this wonderful new book by Ysolda Teague, called The Rhinebeck Sweater.

Included are 12 sweaters by an incredible group of designers. The book is available in print (shipping next month) or as an e-book here: https://ysolda-teague-6zmp.squarespace.com/books/the-rhinebeck-sweater.

Here is my design, Apple Cider Donut :)

Image

I have found that the weather at The New York Sheep and Wool festival in Rhinebeck, NY in October can be very difficult to predict. I always take that into account when designing my “Rhinebeck” sweater for each year. Apple Cider is shown with 4” of positive ease so that it may be worn over a t-shirt if the weather is on the warmer side, or used as a jacket over another sweater if the weather is chilly. Buttons are placed at the collar and top of the sweater only to allow for ease of movement. Apple Cider is simply worked from the top down in one piece in Stockinette Stitch, the stitches for the collar are then picked up and worked in a very easy reversible cable and rib pattern and can be worn up or folded over. The sample uses Fisherman 2-ply from Bartlett yarn, a sturdy yarn that knits up beautifully and quickly.

2 new green cardigan patterns!

Beaux Arts Cardigan from Knitting Architecture

-3

Description from book:
“Cecily Glowik MacDonald’s buttontab-front cardigan is a wardrobe staple. Worked in one-piece to the armhole shaping, it sports elegant lace panels that flank the opening, bordered by a tidy I-cord edging. Slight waist shaping, ornate paneling, a garter stitch collar, and matching buttontabs against a background of simple stockinette stitch embrace the ideas that order and elegant details make for perfect harmony. These details call forth the Beaux Art movement’s love of symmetry.”

Yarn requirements: 5 (5, 6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7, 8) skeins of Quince and Co. Osprey

Book is available through Interweave here: http://www.interweavestore.com/knitting-architecture

New Pattern: Primrose

Primrose is a cropped cardi knit in beautiful Essence by The Woolen Rabbit, it is shown with 1” of positive ease. The piece is worked from the bottom up, then split for the armholes, and the fronts and back are worked separately. Stitches are then picked up around the armholes, simple short row sleeve caps are worked, and then the sleeves are knit down in the round. The only seaming is at the shoulders!
(If a longer version is desired, simply buy more yarn, work longer before separating for fronts and back, pick up more sts for the bands and add an extra buttonhole or two on the buttonhole band.)
