Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Introducing Rosemont Cardigan

What a harsh winter we've had here in New England.  Snow, yes, as we expect, but COLD.  So very cold.  And grey.  With great pleasure I release a new cardigan pattern today in a most refreshing shade of green.  Feast your eyes!

This design was inspired by the more tailored shawl collared cardigan by Kate Gagnon Osborn of Kelbourne Woolens, the Fable Cardigan.  She suggested I design an open front, top down raglan shawl collared cardigan.  I realized, YES, I should!  The Knitbot line was missing a shawl collared sweater.  I love the comfort factor of this design.  I was thinking of it as a perfect cardigan for the brief January thaw we experienced last week.  Now it's 10 degrees outside again, and I realize it's well suited for for the frigid days, too!  

Stay tuned for more details on this cardigan, including a KAL that will be hosted by Kelbourne Woolens!
