It's Sweater Weather!
Our next Knit Along is Andrea Mowry's Throwback
Starting Nov 12th
The Throwback by Andrea Mowry
A Fair Isle yoke sweater in worsted weight yarn. Perfect for layering on misty Northwest days and keeping warm all Winter long!
Knit either the Throwback Cardigan
Or the Throwover Pullover
Both sweaters are knit seamlessly from the top down in worsted weight yarn.
Knit it anyway you like: The Cardigan is worked flat. The Pullover is knit in the round. Or take it to the next level and knit the pullover in the round for easy colorwork and then steek it to make a cardigan - that is what I will b doing.
Whatever method you like best will give you a gorgeous sweater!
We recommend Cascade 220 Worsted - it is 100% Peruvian Highland Wool and makes stranded colorwork a breeze. We are making kits for the contrast colors (available next week), just pick your main color for the sweater body and it pair with a contrast color set.
