Crestview is the jacket version of a cardigan that I had previously designed. It is worked in pieces with seams to allow it to keep its shape and add a bit more stability for wear as a jacket. Crestview is worked from the bottom up and features waist shaping, garter stitch trims, and a fun wrap stitch lace panel up the back. Pattern is available for purchase here for $6.00.

And speaking of Carrie, look at her stunning new design- Camilla Pullover! The pattern is available through her beautiful website, Madder.

This sweater is just so perfect, and as you can see above, I’ve got a thing for details on the back of sweaters. So when I knit my Camilla, I think that I will have to turn it around and wear the center detail at the back some times.  Hmmm, can I wear it 2 days in a row then? One day as pictured, and the next with detail at the back?

And it is knit in my favorite yarn of the moment, the delicious, soft and lovely Quince and Co. Osprey!
