Last month I announced the pre-sale of my Coriander hat KAL. Amazingly a month has now almost passed and we’re starting tomorrow! (I want to know who’s eating up time around here…) The full pattern will be uploaded tomorrow complete with useful tips and a full chart as well as written instructions. If you want to join the group for enthusiastic support from fellow knitters you’ll find us all hanging out here. I can’t wait to get the pattern up and see all your amazing hats taking shape. Once the full pattern is uploaded the pattern reverts to full price.
I had a lovely surprise this morning when I looked on twitter, Interweave Knits Spring 2013 preview is live! Not only do I have a pattern (Vertex Cardigan) in this issue I also have a designer feature that was written by my friend here in Cork Evin O’Keeffe. I can’t tell you how excited I am to have a feature on me in Interweave, it’s very cool :-)
This is a top down cardigan that used a simple bias to create a wonderful effect with very lightly variegated yarn. The sample is knit in Manos Fino that was just perfect for this, the finished cardigan is light as a feather. Do be aware if you’re knitting the cardigan that biased fabric behaves differently as your stitches are on a diagonal so the stitch count doesn’t look like it matches the gauge! Just knit to the sizes given and once you achieve gauge your sizing should be perfect.
