Errata: in the book and pdf download, under finished measurements, there’s a mistake. Where it says pick a size that’s 2” larger than your size, that shouldn’t be there. The recommended ease is 8-10 inches of positive ease.


I try to always remind myself, when designing, that there are no rules. That there is no established way of constructing a sweater. And throughout my career, the most exciting moments have been when a new challenging image jumps in my head, and I face the task of translating that into a knitting pattern. That’s what saves me whenever I am feeling bored or uninspired.
For me, stitches can be oriented in any direction and can be shifted and twisted to acquire any shape, but how to do it? That’s the mystery I set myself to unveil every time. This delicate pullover was inspired in a vintage blouse and it is constructed in a non-traditional direction using 2 more muted colors and a pop of neon for a striking detail.
