Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

In Praise of Gnarled Oak

We now have 3 trunk shows knit up for Coastal Knits. One of the fun things about this is that we now have some of the designs knit in different yarns or colors.One sample I'm especially keen on is Alana's Gnarled Oak Cardigan knit in Pigeonroof Studios Cassiopeia DK. The original sample was knit in the color Juniper.

I'm especially in love with it knit in the color Bronze Age.

Note, this sample is 32", and I am (ahem) not 32".  I would knit the 35 3/4 for myself.   I do think this cardigan looks really cute with negative ease if you like to wear your sweaters that way.





























Yoked cardigans are so great because they look good on EVERYONE.   Gnarled oak comes sized 32 (35¾, 39½, 43, 46¾)[50½, 54, 57¾, 61½]"

If you are looking to knit one of the largest sizes, check out Julie's post on Knitting at Large.  She has some great tips there, as she is knitting it herself!
