It’s Time For a Fall KAL!

 

Mark your calendars! The KAL will run September 15th – October 31st!

Schmutzerella Yarns and I are joining together for a virtual KAL (Knit A Long) with my Amber Cardigan! Join in on the fun anytime during the KAL for chatter & prizes in the thread on Ravelry.com.

Who says a lightweight sweater must be knit on tiny needles? Not me! Use 2 strands of lace weight yarn held together for this quick but delicate looking sweater. It is knit bottom-up in one piece, has built in sleeves, rolled edges in the front, and the only seaming you will need to do is at the shoulders. If you want to knit a fingering weight version simply use 1 strand at a time and you will only need half the stated amount of yarn!

Sizes:
To fit a 28 (32, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)” /
71 (81, 90, 101.5, 112, 122, 132, 142, 152.5)cm bust

Yarn (remember that yarn is held double so that’s why you need so much!):

885 (1045, 1200, 1355, 1515, 1675, 1820, 2010, 2160) yards / 2248 (2560, 3048, 3442, 3848, 4254, 4623, 5105, 5486) meters of lace weight yarn

I am over the moon about my latest project because it was published in the Spring 2013 issue of KnitScene! Interweave has always played a huge role in my personal knitting and designing. I remember when I was young grabbing armloads of Knits magazines and Interweave books to spread over a table at my local library. I was absolutely fascinated that you could follow writing instructions to make an exact replica of the design without a paper pattern.

I could barely contain my excitement when KnitScene started showing up at the library. Simple to knit designs with a fresh and youthful look was just what my younger self was looking for!

About my shrug: The main body is a rectangle worked on the bias, stitches are picked up for the sleeves ribbing, after a small amount of seaming stitches are picked up and are worked in the round for the ribbed collar. Simple to knit, extremely wearable, and it’s fantastic for showing off hand dyed and tonal yarns.

I always dreamed of someday getting into an Interweave magazine and of writing a book. Part 1 of that dream is complete.
