Like a Feather Cardigan




More sweaters please! February is almost halfway gone and we have really enjoyed all the snow this winter. Also I have had plenty of time to get many new designs on the needles and time to get some designs ready too - like this lovely cardigan that I'm publishing today.

The sample of Like a Feather was actually finished more than a year ago, as it was my go-to cardigan in Berlin Knits 2017 - so perfect for early autumn weather!





Like a Feather Cardigan

Like a Feather is a lovely and long open front cardigan with easy top down construction.

This cardigan lets the yarn shine and show its true nature - it really feels like a feather: soft and light yet warm and wonderful to wear. Little details with garter stitch bands and broken rib cuffs highlight the beauty of this simple design.

Finished chest circumference: 32 (36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56)” / 80 (90, 100, 110, 120, 130, 140) cm. Choose a size with approx. 2” (5 cm) of positive ease.

Yarn: 9 (10, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17) skeins of Luft by Woolfolk (55% Merino, 45% Organic Pima Cotton; 109 yards (100 meters) per 50g).

Riverway






More new knits! This one is very Spring-like, both in color and in delicate lace  - but I feel that my thoughts turn right to the Spring and upcoming Summer when the lovely light of late January and early February reflects from all the snow!

The Riverway cardigan was originally designed for Neighborhood Fiber Co.’s Outerloop Sweater Club in 2018!






Riverway

Flowing lace motifs make this light layering piece the key element in your wardrobe! Riverway Cardigan is both stylish and classy, with easy-going feminine shaping. The cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top down.

The lovely blush pink colorway and the luxurious yarn make this even more perfect – a true go-to layering piece for many seasons to come.

Approx. 1200 (1300, 1410, 1520, 1640, 1770, 1900) yards / 1100 (1190, 1290, 1390, 1500, 1620, 1740) meters of heavy lace weight yarn. The sample was knit in colorway Victorian Village and in size medium.

Happiness Cowl


Happy January! New year and the first new design of 2019! Hope this beginning of this year has been a good and meaningful one, I know the past few weeks have given me a lot to think about!

We are enjoying all the snow and winter activities. I'm also preparing for Vogue Knitting Live in NYC just in a week - so more new patterns to come next week! Stay tuned!




I know many of you have been waiting for this cowl and after Jonna kindly took these stunning pictures it's finally ready for you.

Happiness Cowl

Squishy brioche is mixed with colorplay for a warm and lovely cowl. The patterning might look complicated, but in reality it’s actually quite simple!

This project is perfect for all your DK weight single skein stash finds. Happiness cowl was such a happy project for me - all the lovely colors brought together by gentle movement of brioche and the cherry on top was the fun of I-cord cast on and bind off.

Yarn: 3 skeins of DK weight yarn (each in a different color). Approx. a total of 630 yards (585 meters) of DK weight yarn; 210 yards (195 meters) of each MC, CC1 and CC2.
Shown in the following yarns and colors -
  • MC: Merino DK by La Bien Aimée in colorway Yellow Brick Road (yellow).
  • CC1: Merino DK by Hedgehog Fibres in colorway Coral (pink-coral).
  • CC2: Marquess (MCN DK) by Primrose Yarn Co in colorway Dreams (gray-speckled).
Finished measurements: 50” (125 cm) in circumference and 10” (25 cm) deep.
