I designed All of the Lights in collaboration with the wonderful folks at Primrose Yarn Co.
They will be displaying my original sample this weekend at Vogue Knitting Live and will be featuring kits both at the booth and online. Sadly I cannot be there, but I trust you will find your way to visit my design

This cardigan coat is worked seamlessly from the top down, with a creative and challenging construction. Are you ready for a wonderful festival of cables, lace and color?
All of the Lights was inspired by the name of the colorway that Kelsey created for me. And this name was inspired by All of the Lights in New York City (which happens to be my favorite city to visit).
I had so much fun designing this piece. At first I thought that the cables and lace would be obscured by all the color in the yarn, but I was so wrong! The exaggerated patterning really worked wonderfully.

If you have a moment to take a look at the detail pics, please pay attention to my favorite parts: The back neck and the pocket edgings. I am so proud of these… ❤️

SIZES
XS/S (M/L, XL/2XL, 3XL, 4XL)
Since this cardigan has a very relaxed fit, most sizes fit a bigger range of body measurements. Therefore there are only 5 sizes given for my usual size range.
Recommended ease: Approx. 8” (20 cm) of positive ease although it can range from 6” (15 cm) to 10” (25 cm).
Shown in size M/L on a 36” bust.
