This is a classic fisherman’s sweater from Bretagne, but shaped for the female form and knit with the latest bottom-up, contiguous technique. This ensures a perfect fit around the shoulders. It has a gentle aA-line, narrow sleeves and a slightly deepened crew neck line.
The name of this sweater is a play on fair-isle and “Many-Colored Land”. I wanted to design a cardigan that used several fair-isle motifs in a different way. I juxtaposed the herringbone with the seventies flower motif on the front, the gingham with the leopard, and on the back something different as well!
This airy spring dress is perfect for transitioning into summer. The easy top-down construction, with the yarnovers for extra coolness is quickly knitted up. The dress skims rather than clings to the body for ease of movement. The striping allows you to finish up some yarn that isn’t enough for a cardigan.…
The name of this cardigan is pretty self-explanatory, right? I love polka dots, and I’ve been wanting to knit a sweater with them for a long time, but I couldn’t find the right combination of yarn and pattern. But now with the delicious madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, with its soft, variegated colors, I hit the jackpot.
This top-down dress with interesting geometric line play is a delight to wear. The easy construction, made with Suzie M.’s contiguous method, is quickly knit up. The purl stitch decorative lines and purl I-cord trim, as well as little pocket make it interesting and fun. Length for body and sleeves can be adjusted to your own preference.
Matrix fan? Love their ‘decayed’ knits? This sweater with a difference is easy to wear in all kinds of different ways. The easy top-down construction, made with Suzie M.’s contiguous method, is quickly knit up. The drop-stitch darts form the shaping, in a unique new way. Even the sleeve decreases are somewhere else!
Knitting: Cardigan, Coat / Jacket
This elegant, slightly A-line long cardigan has a dramatically cabled front band, cuffs and pockets. The body of the cardigan is textured with the easy to knit linen stitch or elongated moss-stitch. Side seams are supported and accentuated with a little cable.
This vintage-inspired (think Mad Men! Christina Hendricks!) check dress is knitted bottom up with lots of shaping to create the fitted silhouette. The checks are created by knitting the horizontal stripes, and the crocheted vertical stripes are aided by a purl stitch around the stockinette blocks.
