More new patterns & KAL winners.

We’ve got some winners from our Among Stones KAL!

Congratulations to carolynba who knit Dacite, she’s won the stack of Dongeal Yarn.

And a second congratulations to mataharimau who has won the Maiden Hair and beads and here is her Gabbro:

Now for those new patterns I promised you yesterday.

The first pattern is Penrose Tile from a brand new spinning magazine, Ply:

Creating this pattern was a treat for me, I don’t have a lot of experience with hand spun yarns and it was daunting (but exciting!) getting to suggest colors and combinations that I wanted for the shawl. They created two yarns for me, one was a striped yarn that moved from yellow to brown and the second yarn was one of the browns from the stripes in a solid color. The shawl starts at the top and uses a series of short rows and increases to create ’tiles’ in garter and lace across the top of the shawl. You might be able to tell, I had a lot of fun playing with short rows on this shawl!

The second pattern of mine that has been released in the last month is Clear Creek Pullover from the Fall Issue of Interweave.

I love how this sweater has been photographed, the model is beautiful but earthy and you can’t beat outdoor photography. It was Lisa Shroyer’s first photo shoot as the editor of Interweave and I’m really looking forward to where she goes from here!

This design was kept deliberately simple, top down with dropped stitch details and a circular yoke. It’s in a yarn that I love to use, Madelinetosh ‘Pashmina’ that feels great to knit with. I was worried that the yarn color variations would dominate too much but I think it works in the end?

  1. When I saw Gabro I fell in love. It looked very Eileen Fisher – a loose, layering piece with beautiful detail. How disappointing to go to the Ravelry site and find it very fitted. I’d love to see this in a loose-fitting garment.

  2. I am currently knitting Clear Creek Pullover but I am confused over the “raglan Inc round”
    It only works one raglan sleeve, not 2
    I’m not an expect knitter so need to be told in print how to do the second raglan at the same time as the first.
    Help please!!

  3. Just purchased fall Interweave because I LOVE your Clear Creek Pullover pattern. I’ve been looking to make a sweater I can throw on and wear with jeans that looks casual but not like I pulled a sweatshirt. I can see it with a nice big wrapped scarf as the weather gets cooler, yummy. This is the one! Can’t wait to pick out yarn and put this in my list to knit…for ME! Thanks:)

  4. The full insturctions are given for the round, you can see that it has a ‘*’ at the start and you repeat that section 3 more times on the raglan round.
