I’m so excited to be a part of knit.wear fall 2012 magazine, due out soon!
I’ve been in love with this stitch pattern for years, but have had a hard time working it into a sweater pattern until now. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started knitting this sweater, or a cardigan or pullover with this stitch pattern but different construction, and just totally failed. It’s one of those things that has been haunting me, until now! I finally did it, and it worked beautifully, if I do say so myself.
knit.wear magazine, from Interweave, is dedicated to clean, classic knitting. Their magazines are always full of timeless pieces, classic sweater shapes and textures, and I’m so excited to be a part of it. Snag the issue here. Queue it on ravelry!

A note about sizing: I had this sweater pictured measured as a size 32″. knit.wear’s tech editor clocked it as a 27 3/4″. I think that clearly demonstrates that this stitch pattern is pretty hard to measure, and also that it has a lot of stretch. I’m a size 36″ bust and I could weasel my way into this sucker. It wasn’t exactly pretty, but it still worked, so don’t be turned off by the small sizing of the sweater. I think it should have at least 2 if not 4″ of negative ease, which would make sense based on my original measurement.Pin It
