Abigail Cardigan and an up-coming project

This week’s Quince and Co. e-letter features my Abigail cardigan modeled by the lovely Abigail!

Abigail is worked from the top down in one-piece with stitches picked up for the collar. It is worked at a drape-y gauge and knit in Reverse St st, but may also be worked in St st.
This lightweight knit is perfect for cool summer evenings or walks in the woods.
Sample knit by Amanda Hosmer.

In the works……

Breezy Blues is a little 3 pattern e-booklet (the patterns will also be available for individual purchase) featuring 3 summertime cardigans knit in hand dyed yarns. It has original artwork by my husband, Ethan MacDonald and photos by Carrie Bostick Hoge.

I am hoping to have all the editing complete and the e-booklet available for purchase by the end of the month.  I’ll share some teasers pics of the sweaters as we get a little closer to finishing.

Thank you for visiting!
