New Pattern: Gavotte

I released a new pattern this week called Gavotte. Gavotte is worked from the top down in one piece with raglan shaping and a drape-y front neck.

Photos are by Carrie Bostick Hoge and I couldn’t resist adding one of me and her amazing daughter!

Gavotte is a sweater that I had in my mind for ages and finally had time to knit it.  It was photographed quite awhile ago and I have worn it a ton since then. I have a rule that I can’t wear my knits until the have been photographed, I have a big fear that I will spill something ridiculous on them!

Naming this one was tough, in my head it was always “that-sweater-that-I-having-been-thinking-about-knitting-forever”, but that seemed a bit long 😉  I end up choosing Gavotte, which the dictionary describes as a French peasant dance with a moderate tempo. I think it works?

Finished Measurements at bust: 30 ¼ (32 ¼, 35 ¾, 39, 42 ¼, 45 ¾, 49, 52 ¼, 55 ¾)”
