Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Walpole

When Jared Flood approached me about creating a design for Wool People 3 I had to stop and think. I was relatively close to having a baby and had told myself no more designing was allowed. Once I saw his inspiration boards, well, Walpole came to mind...how could I not make it happen? A few weeks after Mabel was born, it was exciting to see my design beautifully presented by Mr. Flood.

Knit at a slightly looser gauge with LOFT, this is absolutely a comfortable cardigan. I look forward to seeing many versions of it popping up on Ravelry, in all the colors of the LOFT rainbow!
