I had a few requests for the pattern for this sweater, and it’s finally ready! And if you scroll down, I have a fun giveaway today!

Rusholme Cardigan

Rusholme Cardigan

RUSHOLME is a cozy zippered cardigan with chunky seed stitch details and optional patch pockets. A little bit of waist shaping is worked on the back only, for a flattering but easy fit. The deep cuffs, fronts and long sailor collar are all edged with attached I-cord for a lovely clean finish. A one or two-way zipper makes Rusholme super easy to throw on every day, but it can also be worn open, or closed with toggles.

Worked as seamless raglan from the bottom up, with body knit flat and sleeves worked in the round. Can be worn with negative ease for a close fit, or make a larger size for extra coziness. For the best size, measure a sweater you like the fit of, and make the size closest to it. Shown in size 40ā€ / 100cm with about 2ā€ / 5cm of negative ease.

    Would love to give the gleener a try. I’ve yet to find a great solution to pilling.

  2. Jenni

    Ah! I’ve been wanting to buy a Gleener since I saw your post! Nice sweater! Looks like one I will knit!

  3. Page

    I am always looking for new tools to de-pill sweaters. The Gleener seems like a great option!

  4. Linda

    I’ve been wanting one of these for a while now, so here’s my chance. Thank you for the give away. Also, your new designs is lovely. Looks so cozy.

  5. ShirleyN

    I could really use the Gleener. Sadly, several of my handknit sweaters are pilling badly.

  6. Jennifer

    Most of my pill-removing tools function sub-par.
    Also: that is a lovely cardigan!

  7. Sheri

    Love the sweater. Would love to win the Gleener. Thanks for the giveaway.

  8. Jennifer Tobey

    What a great give away. I promptly put a gleener on my Christmas wish list! I’m loving this sweater as well! Very wearable.

  9. anna

    Thanks for the give away, looks like a great way to get rid of pills on those garments you don’t want to part with!

  10. Cindy D.

    After reading your post I purchased a Gleener for a friend, seems reasonable that I borrow it continually. Might be time for me to have one of my own.

  11. robin mc

    Love the new sweater pattern! Could really use a Gleener. Fingers crossed that I win!

  12. Kat

    I’d love a Gleener! My current method of de-pilling is cutting off each pill individually with embroidery scissors-yuck!

  13. Karen Maddi

    I would love a Gleener. I’d also really like to try this sweater. I’ve put it in my queue for the future!

  14. Sarah

    Would love an upgrade to my sweater stone. Also, this pattern is lovely!

  15. Laura

    I’ve never tried a Gleener but always wanted to. Love the cardi!

  16. Sherri

    Love your cardigan – looks like it would be very comfortable! Would love to try the Gleener.

  17. Kayteau

    Really like that cardi! Looks like just the thing to wear on a grey and dreary day.

  18. Wendy

    The sweater is so gorgeous, it may make me try to to install a zipper. The Gleener is so amazing, I too want to share it with everyone!

  19. Sherry

    i have wanted to try the Gleener for a while now! Love your sweater too, looks very cozy!

  20. Francesca

    Gleener looks like a great tool. And the new sweater is fantastic!

  21. Judy

    Wow, Laura, you are a knitting machine! Another beautiful sweater. What a great tool the Gleener looks to be, much better than my sweater stone. And how special that you were gifted one for a giveaway on the basis of your recommendation. Very thoughtful on their part.

  22. Marie Biswell

    I’ve been wanting to get a de-piller (is that a word) because all of the dresses that I knitted for my baby girl have pilled up something bad…. I didn’t take in the ‘crawling’ bit of the dresses & the knees are the worst!


  23. Melody N

    I added a gleener to my Christmas list after your last post but alas my family doesn’t always understand my fibers needs. If I don’t win on or receive a gift I’ll just have to order one!

  24. Dr. Steph

    I remember you cleaning my mittens with one of these. They’re full of pills again. I need one of these!

  25. Dana (DanaRae19 on Ravelry)

    Lovely sweater. :) I’d love to win the Gleener too, I would put it to use, that’s for sure! Thanks for the chance to win!

  26. Kate

    I’d love a Gleener! I’ve definitely dropped a few hints to my family to buy me one for Christmas but I’ve got several sweaters in desperate need of depilling and I haven’t found anything that does a good job other than cutting off the pills individually!

  27. Enid

    The gleener looks like a cool gadget. The sweater looks very comfortable and great!

  28. carolyn

    I just put a Gleener on my wish list. I have a couple of sweaters badly in need of a clean up! The Rusholme sweater is really nice. Looks so warm and cozy.

  29. Suzanne

    Ohhhh i have wanted to get this for Noel last year, I had put it on my wishlist but nobody got it for me…this coat/jacket/cardigan is just so perfect, will purchase the pattern

  30. Linda T

    Fun giveaway. The sweater is beautiful and I love the colour too.

  31. Ruthie

    My sweater shaver just broke so the Gleener would be perfect. Very pretty sweater pattern, and it looks lovely on you too!

  32. Karalee

    Great giveaway, and I love the sweater! A zipper closure seems so practical, but I haven’t dared try one yet; I fear my sewing skills are not quite up to it.

  33. Lara

    What a perfect tool for sweater wearers, thanks for mentioning.

  34. Keren

    Laura – this pattern is amazing. The cardi looks super cozi and very beautiful

    Gorgeous cardigan – I love the pockets and the color! If only I had time for personal knitting before Christmas…..

    Oooh, I need another cozy sweater… this might fit the bill.

  41. Ella

    What a cute sweater! Perfect for a snowy day like it is here!

  65. Melanie Comello

    The gleener would be perfect….I can’t even lie, although i have a few sweaters that could use it, all kidding aside, i’d mostly love it for my little girls sweater dresses!! I’m still not quite sure, why her’s do it so much more then mine. Maybe it’s just because they’re worn more often lol, or at least it seems that way.

  66. Melanie Montgomery

    I have so many swaeters that need saving with this!
