A load of the designs I worked on this spring and summer are being released!
Rail Yard is FREE PATTERN for a cozy, cabley cardigan featuring awesome chain-link cables and a double-thick collar. It’s worked in Lorna’s Laces Cloudgate, a new multi-plied superwash bulky merino – so plush! Check out the Deep Fall Issue of Knitty!
The body of Rail Yard is worked in one piece from the bottom to the shoulders. The long set-in sleeves are worked flat and seamed in. Oh, and regarding hanging out by the train tracks – the road and sidewalks go over the tracks here and there’s long visibility in both directions, so I didn’t feel unsafe. Someone that lived in a house next to the tracks thought we were there to photograph the train ;)
You may have heard Laurie from Feel Good Yarn Company this week on the Woolful podcast. I’ve designed two sweaters in their SilverSpun Sport, a really cool cotton-nylon-spandex-silver that has tons of stretch and feels like terry cloth when knit up.
Belwood is a scoop neck pullover that features an easy texture pattern on the front and back, stockinette panels at the sides for easy shaping, and long ribbed sleeves. The body is worked in the round from the bottom up, then split for the upper body. The sleeves are worked in the round to the cap, then back and forth for the cap before being seamed in.
Whew! I’ve been busy!
