Today’s surprise in our Advent Calendar: 20% off with the code: adventcalendar8 (valid until door no. 9 opens).

A while ago I had been contacted by Kim Goodling, the owner of The Gotland Wool Company, who raises Gotland sheep in the U.S. and sells her yarns online and at festivals. Kim, who liked my garments combining lacework and Stockinette, wanted a pattern for a short pullover, cardigan, or vest that would show off the qualities of her wonderful yarn with emphasis on maximum yarn usage, since with this type of high-end yarn, overall project cost is often a concern.

Having never worked with Gotland yarn before, I was very curious to learn how it would knit up and what would look best to showcase its advantages. I found it to be a truly beautiful yarn that didn’t want to be spoiled by overloading it with features or drowning out its structure!

We agreed that from the colors Kim picked, I would design a cardigan in two lengths to give knitters an option of deciding on the overall yarn amount used: regular and cropped; as well as with a short and long sleeve version.

Vermont is a classic top-down raglan sweater knit seamlessly with textured lace back. The pattern contains four styling options: cropped, regular, short sleeve, and long sleeve.

“Vermont” was designed in collaboration with The Gotland Wool Company.
