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.

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!
