After a couple of days of intensive pattern-writing, and a self-timered photoshoot on my back deck, I FINALLY have the pattern for my O-Wool Balance cardigan ready for sale! The yarn works up into a lovely light, tweedy fabric and the yardage is fab!
Callie is a fun, quick-to-knit seamless sweater, knit from the top down. Three-quarter sleeves, seed stitch and picot edgings and dart shaping make this feminine sweater graceful and polished. As always with a top-down raglan, you can easily modify lengths and shapings to fit your body!

Yet another gorgeous pattern you have created. I hope to go to TO soon and maybe see it with my own eyes. ;)
You are adorable as usual, and the cardigan looks great! Simple, flattering, stylish. I want. :)
Very cute, nice work!!!
Just lovely! As always :)
Great! I happen to have just the right amount of O-Wool balance in my stash to make it!
I love it!
love it! i’ve been looking for a pattern for my first ever sweater and think this might be it. love the organic yarn too.
I just came across this cardigan and thought I had to make it because… hey! That’s my name!
I am currently working on this pattern and I LOVE it. With a 46 bust, it is often hard to find patterns that are flattering AND fit. This is perfect.
Yesterday I bought your B-Side cardi pattern and look forward to tackling that one next.
I love this – I am wondering what size Christina above made given her measurements… anyone willing to venture a guess?
