Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Gable and Mayu

In the past few months I've had two pullover patterns published as part of collaborative collections.

Earlier this fall it was exciting to be featured in the Japanese magazine Amirisu alongside some of my pals, including Carrie Hoge and Pam Allen.  

Mayu, which means cocoon in Japanese, seems the appropriate name for my long a-lined body and sleeve pullover featuring Quince & Co. Osprey.  Enveloped in squishy loose spun wool with just enough twist, the fabric is divine!

I was very excited when Jared invited me to be part of Wool People again!  It was a treat to design Walpole for WP3 - that cardigan remains one of my favorite designs!  I wanted to use the twisted rib pattern from Walpole as a design element, and decided to try a pullover in Loft.  A subtle triangle rises from the center front hem.  Short row shaping is featured in both the hem and the neck.  In the end the elements used in this round yoke pullover work together rather than compete for attention - just enough interest in this otherwise simple go-to piece.
