I’ve got a new pattern!
And I’m so happy with this one. (Sure, I’m happy with all of my patterns, otherwise I wouldn’t publish them, but still.) I’m so proud of how it turned out!
My pattern is in Knit Pick’s new collection, Creative Color: 2016 Fair Isle Collection.This collection is so pretty- I can’t stand it.
Happily Sweater by Katy Banks
Summer Wanes Cowl and Hat by Heather Storta
And in among all the gorgeous patters, I’d like to introduce you to my sweater, the Bitterlake Cardigan!It’s a zip-up cardigan, knit back and forth in a single piece (no seaming!), with a little bit of shaping at the sides for a nice fit. But the best part (so excited about this bit!) is the Fair Isle button band/neckband/hem combo. It’s worked in the round using 5 colors (4 shades of brown, and a contrasting saffron orange), then backed with a facing to cover all the floats for a really professional finish.I love how the designs on the bands match up, and I love the practicality of a zippered cardigan.Head on over to Knit Picks if you want a copy of this collection! It’s so good!

Congrats!!! I love the sweater, but the Summer Wanes cowl and hat is right in my wheel house. Love color work hats.
Your sweater is gorgeous! And congrats on another great creation!
The Laver Scarf speaks to me. So varied and would go with everything anyone wears . .
Oh man, another Fair Isle Knit Picks book to make me swoon to master stranded knitting!
Though all the patterns are simply stunning, the Happily Sweater is the one I keep coming back to. I am a sucker for a gradient look, and I keep envisioning that sweater in my wardrobe transitioning from that deep purple to the softest of light blues.
That Bitterlake Cardigan is BEAUTIFUL!
