Berry Creek

A few months ago a DC yarn store, Looped Yarn Works, approached me to do a design for them. This design was specifically for the Metro Yarn Crawl. Impressively this area boasts an amazing 11 yarn stores, coming from an area where yarn stores are thin on the ground the idea of having enough to do a yarn crawl made me rather envious!

Looped Yarn Works is one of Quince & Co’s flagship stores so they sent me on some lovely Chickadee to do the design in. The resulting pattern that I created was Berry Creek. This pattern was initially exclusive to the store for the duration of the yarn crawl but now I get to release it for everyone else :-) There’s a automatic $1 discount on the pattern until April 21st!

I wanted to design a cardigan that was a perfect spring/summer layer. It has been designed with short sleeves, a ribbed lace pattern and smooth a-line side shaping. The ribbed lace flows straight into the ribbed bodice with raglan shoulder shaping and a v-neck. I’ve shown it styled over a longer top (it’s still really cold here in Ireland!) but you could wear it buttoned over a tank for a summer style.

If you like your cardigan with longer sleeves all you’d have to do is start your sleeves separately and then add them instead of casting on your sleeve stitches at the start of the yoke. It wouldn’t be a hard modification to make.

So get knitting and let me know on my board what modifications you’re going to make.

    I was in two of your wonderful classes at Fibre Space. I was very excited that you wrote a pattern for our yarn crawl and that Looped Yarn Works distributed it as the project for the crawl. I purchased the chickadee yarn in the color “River”. Also excited to see that Looped Yarn Works carries Studio Donegal yarn so I purchased enough in the gray color to knit Dacite. Thanks again for coming and designing such beautiful things. Carol O

    I’ve taken 2 of your Craftsy classes. I’m eager to try this sweater with short sleeves. Keep up the good work!

    I LOVE this sweater pattern I was wondering if it would be possible to do the “contiguous” method for the sleeves to make them longer?
