The preview is up for Knitscene Winter 2012! So many lovely sweaters and shawls in this issue. Will my queue ever stop growing??? I think I have enough projects lined up to last me the rest of my life! I am so thrilled to say that I have two patterns in this issue, both using a counterpane construction. Photos are courtesy of Knitscene.
First up is Erte Cardigan, a cozy cardigan with a cabled medallion on the back. Long fronts can be left open and draped or wrapped and held closed with a shawl pin. The edges are finished with a textured chevron stitch. A worsted weight wool gives you a nice and cozy cardigan to keep you wa
Next is Minnette Pullover, a lace sweater with a shallow scoop neck and fitted sleeves. Both the front and back are worked from the center outwards in a lace medallion, with the diagonal lace pattern continuing across the body. The sleeves and bottom hem are worked in a lace rib. I think Minnette would make a perfect holiday party sweater; when paired with nice slacks you have a dressed up outfit that won't leave you feeling cold.
Cassie loves to knit, read and cook. She sometimes does all three at the same time.
