KAL Announcement: Sweet Root

This week, The Fiber Gallery announced our fall schedule, which includes a sweater knitalong, and I'm so excited and proud to say that my design is the featured pattern! Say hello to Sweet Root, an almost-seamless cardigan with a tailored fit and an Estonian-style lace detail. This sweater has been my baby for the last few months, and I'm so excited to finally be able to share it with you!

For this design, I wanted the shape to be flattering to a variety of body shapes and sizes - and for the size range to reflect that as well - so I designed it with a range of sizes from 28" up to 60". The fit is tailored in the shoulders with optional waist shaping in the front, and straight shape in the back for an easy fit and swingy shape. The sleeves are knit on seamlessly using short rows, with a full shape and gently gathered cuff.

It's knit in Tracie Too from Imperial Yarn, which was the most wonderful, sproingy, crisp & wooly yarn to work with! I was really inspired by the color palette, which features sophisticated neutrals and colors, ideal for garments with a tailored feel.

Sweet Root will be available exclusively at the shop in early September, with a KAL kick-off date on September 19th from 4-6 pm.

Non-local folks will be able to download it starting in November. I'll be sure to keep you all posted as soon as it becomes available!

Happy weekend, friends!
