Today’s two new pattern releases are with the inimitable Miss Babs! I love the subtle variation and intense colours of Miss Babs yarn, and I think these two sweaters turned out great.
Hibiscus Cardigan is a seamless raglan knit from the bottom up. The body features a knit/purl chevron pattern that’s easy to keep track of, and the long sleeves are worked in 1×1 rib for a stretchy, comfy fabric. Hibiscus is worked in Yummy 3-ply, a lovely densely spun superwash merino that really shows off the stitches.
Punchwork Cardigan is also worked seamlessly from the bottom up, but is great for warmer weather with elbow-length sleeves and a cropped, lacy body. Miss Babs Kiera is a heavy fingering weight yarn that comes in huge skeins – 560 yards per skein! So you only need a few to create this pretty topper that would look great over a dress or tunic this spring.
