I’ve been thinking a lot about gratitude recently and as part of that I’m starting a new Gratitude Program. I’m offering a free pattern of your choice for every $25 spent on my Ravelry patterns. Past purchases on Ravelry definitely apply! I wrote a blog post explaining the program here . Happy knitting!

ABOUT THE PATTERN
The Salt River Sweater combines an asymmetric center front cable panel with top-down construction and a stockinette stitch body. Salt River is a simple top-down seamless raglan with positive ease and subtle shaping for a relaxed fit. Named after the Salt River Basin in Arizona because the cables evoke the dry river beds and arroyos that make up this water basin most of the year. Once living river corridors, the river beds only fill with water and quickly drain during the Monsoon rains now. Written in 7 sizes. Cables charted and written.
