A fresh perspective

| Project Inspiration, Yarn

We’ll be bringing another brand new pattern with us to NYC this weekend.  Maureen and Kate are headed to Vogue Knitting Live at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, where we’ll have a booth with all of our yarns and latest designs.

This week, we’re proud to introduce Maureen Clark’s new cardigan, Turning Sideways.

This clever sweater is knit from side to side starting from each ribbed cuff and working towards the center.  You may find that working a project from a different direction to be a refreshing change.  We sure did!

You’ll be amazed by the cunning technique that allows you to cast on stitches for the front and back of the cardigan without an edge that requires seaming.  That stunning mosaic colorwork is worked only on the front and is charted for your ease.

The back features a box pleat at the neck and the two sides are joined at the back with a three needle bind off for a clean finish.  This sweater is exactly what you want to pop on while temperatures remain low this winter.  Knit up with a worsted weight yarn, you’ll have it ready before spring!

The pattern is written with a generous sizing range from 30 (34, 38, 42, 46, 50, 54)” / 76 ( 86, 96, 106, 116, 127, 137)cm.  It requires (9, 9, 9, 10, 10, 10) skeins for MC, 1 (1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2) skeins for CC, in either Weekend Wool or Mountain Mohair.  The possible color combinations are mouthwatering!

We’ll have our entire color range with us this weekend, so that you can have your pick of lovely shades to work with.  We’d be delighted to visit with you while we’re enjoying our stay in the big apple.

And you can always shop our website, any time.  If you’re shopping online, you may want to take advantage our of current sale and see if any of our odd weight skeins of Mountain Mohair strike your fancy.
