New Rusholme Pattern – and Gleener Giveaway!

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 40” / 100cm with about 2” / 5cm of negative ease.

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

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

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

    I have plenty of things that need the Gleener. Thanks.

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

  7. Jennifer Avatar

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

    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!

    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.

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

  13. Kat Avatar

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

  27. Judy Avatar

    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.

    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!

    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!

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

  38. Kate Avatar

    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!

  39. Enid Avatar

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

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

  49. Karalee Avatar

    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.

  50. Lara Avatar

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

    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.
