I’ve just had a new pattern published with Knitscene for Spring 2012 (Spring always seems like wishful thinking at this time of year!) There are some very wearable designs in this issue, I’m really fond of Beulah Cardigan by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark, I love the wonderful color and delicate design of the cardigan.
I worked with a yarn for the Florence Cardigan that was new to me but really works for the pattern. Its a slubby cotton/linen mix that was knit at a slightly loose gauge. This allows it to drape and flow which is what the design needs! It’s a simple pattern with a few little twists to make it unique! I would love to knit another one for myself, seems like a good all purpose summer cardigan.
I try to take a few photos of me wearing the knits before I send them off to magazines. I think that way you get a chance to see the piece in two different settings and worn different ways. Here are my photos from last summer of the cardigan:
