PATTERN RELEASE FRIDAY OCTOBER 23rd!

As a designer, I have long used woven wall hangings as a source of inspiration for my knitting. They have inspired sock, mitten, and sweater patterns. What fascinates me about the older tapestries is that they have so much in common with the technique of knitting, including motif shapes and materials, as well as yarn. First and foremost, features on woven tapestries can easily be transferred to knitting because there are often pretty, rhythmic, and simple patterns that facilitate combining colors. In this sweater, the color scheme was achieved through a balance of muted blue tones in combination with a bright white and yellow for both lively and toned-down expressions.
