Available in Afternoon Tea Volume Two!
Assam is a cozy cardigan with an interesting construction, and had been on my to-release list for ages! I knit a prototype of this sweater in some tweed several years ago, but the pattern wasn’t really finalized until I knit this current sample. Assam is knit in one big piece, from cuff to cuff, and then the large seed stitch border is picked up and worked at the end. There are a couple of long seams, but in general it’s pretty light on the finishing.
It’s a nice boxy, relaxed shape, really easy to throw on an go. The Tanis aran weight yarn has a really great weight to it (it’s quite heavy), which I find really comforting. The faux raglan shaping doesn’t actually change the stitch count or anything, but it does provide a bit of interesting knitting to break up the stockinette without being too taxing, and I find it does help keep the sweater on your shoulders.
I even have some photos of me in it!
