Sway is worked from the top down with raglan shaping. After the yoke, increases are worked at the sides and center back to add swing to the bottom of the piece. The stitches for the collar are picked up and worked in rib and optional patch pockets are added.

Zealand Falls

I am going hiking for a few days next week and one of the stops is called Zealand Falls, with the way the worked in collar gently falls down the fronts I thought it was a good name for this piece too:)

Zealand Falls is knit from the bottom up, split for the armholes, the collar is continued after the shoulders and is sewn along the back neck. A quick decrease row forms a pretty gather at the back of the collar. The sleeves are worked by picking up stitches, knitting short row sleeve caps and then working down in the round.

Here are photos of my sweater named Zealand Falls and after my trip I will post some pics of the place it is named after-

The Shepard and The Shearer 2014

The Shepherd and Shearer is such a wonderful project and I am delighted to get to be part of it this year!

Here is a link to more info about this this annual project and how it began- http://www.fiberfarm.com/2012/11/the-big-announcement

And a link to how to purchase this years kits- http://www.fiberfarm.com/shop/the-shepherd-and-the-shearer-2014

The design began when I received this beautiful yarn-

Image

 

I tend to find the most inspiration for designs from the yarn itself. After much swatching and then sending a few design ideas over, this was cable pattern that I used in my design.

Image

The center cable reminds me of twisting ivy that climbs along the brick wall next to my house.

Image

The outer cables are reminiscent of the tops of the andromeda plant in my backyard.

Image

The yarn is such a delight to knit with that my progress on this design has moved quickly! Here are some in progress shots-

Image

Just a sleeve and pocket linings to go! I can’t wait to get to wear this one!

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