The thrill of walking down a buzzing seaside pier is the inspiration behind Kettle Yarn Co.’s new The Boardwalk Collection in the new luminous hues of ISLINGTON DK.

Featuring six vibrant designs from Renée Callahan, Rachel C. Brown, Rachel Coopey, Isabell Kraemer, Maria Magnusson and Linda Lencovic, the collection spans summer to autumn with heirloom items you’ll love all year!
Knit from the top down, Arcade is an easy garment that can be dressed up or down. Fitted with gentle ease through the bust and shoulders, the flatterning A-shaped body is enhanced with diagonal eyelet stripes.
Sample shown knit in Islington DK Verdigris

Arcade is worked seamlessly from the top down. First the neck is shaped by working short-rows back and forth. Then the yoke is worked in the round with raglan increases. When the yoke shaping is complete, the sleeve sts are placed on hold and the underarm sts are cast on, using your preferred cast on method. Then the body is worked in the round to the bottom with an A-line shaping and some beautiful diagonal eyelet stripes. Then sleeve sts are picked up again to work the sleeves top down in the round to the end. As this jumper is worked from the top down it is advisable to try it on from time to time to check the length and overall fit. The length and width of the yoke are easily adjustable by adding/ reducing increases, or adding/ reducing underarm sts
