Have you seen the new issue of Interweave Knits?It’s all about cables! And you know how I feel about cables. (I’m pro-cable, if that was ever in question.)
Look at this wrap! That’s an impressive amount of cables.Definitely something I’d make- I mean, come on! It’s a massive wrap covered all over with intricate, squooshy cables. Yes please.
Oh, wait just a second… look!That’s right! I’ve got a pattern in Interweave Knits!
I’d say it was a dream come true, except that I never really believed that I’d be able to do it. I remember buying back-orders of Interweave in high school because I couldn’t afford to get an actual subscription. It always seemed so fancy, so professional. I always though “Man, those Interweave designers must really be experts.”
And now I’m one of them! Hot dog!
I’m almost as excited about the pattern as I am about just getting it published- The Herring Cove Wrap is a massive wrap- a gorgeous tangle of multi-strand cables. It’s not for the faint of heart, but the results are totally worth it. The example in the magazine is worked in delicious Shibui Knits Drift– an insane blend of cashmere and merino that shines like silk but feels like a cross between a kitten and a puffy white cloud. (But if you don’t have hundreds of bucks laying around to blow on yarn, any soft, squishy worsted should work well.)
You can order a copy of the magazine (online or paper) here. Or, take a trip to wherever magazines are sold!
