NEW! - Centaury Cardigan February 22, 2021 09:42
The Centaury Pattern is finally available! You may have seen me posting about it last Spring, or seen some of the WIP's from the pattern testing. Well, I've finally gotten my ducks in a row and finished publishing the pattern.
It's a seamless cardigan, worked from the bottom up. You can watch all about the construction of this sweater in this video.

The yarn I used in the sample Centaury sweater is Bluefaced Leicester DK from West Yorkshire Spinners. It's a sturdy DK weight yarn, which is currently available in natural colors. I think this sweater would work up beautifully in any DK weight wool, or even a cotton blend for warmer weather!
In addition to the digital PDF's that I usually publish, many of my patterns are now available as printed patterns too! Check out all the patterns available in print.
The Centaury Cardigan pattern includes:
• 8 pages of tested and tech edited instructions.
• Written and charted instructions for the lace ribbing
• Schematic with metric and imperial measurements
• Beautiful color photography by Carrie Bostick Hoge
