Phew! The hundred-day challenge of wearing hand knits during the summer has ended. And just in time for the first real cold day of fall this morning! This last cardigan I wore for the challenge is Uist by Jennie Atkinson, knitted in Rowan Pure Wool dk yarn, which is now discontinued. But, as you can imagine, I am also wearing a sweater today. Hey, it’s cold and I have all this great knitwear in the cupboard!
This is a houndstooth pullover pattern designed by Anny Blatt. If you want to knit it, it’s called The Dinky Pull and the pattern is published in Couture Collection Number 217.
Isn’t this faux fur coat fabulous? It is a Filatura di Crosa pattern using Cincilla yarn which was discontinued to my everlasting regret. You can find this coat pattern in their Cincilla pattern book.
Brigitte, by Martin Storey, was adapted by adding extra copper beads into the pattern. I wanted a 1950’s beaded sweater look, and had a lot of fun knitting this.
Sarah Dallas’ Diamond Stitch Pullover is a fun top to wear over a longer blouse, or peplum. The short sleeves keep it from being too warm.
Thank you so much, readers, for all your encouragement and support over the last hundred days! It is such a priveledge to be a part of this nurturing community of clever and creative people working to realize our knitting dreams!!!!
