Thinking about Spring

I know that most of us are dealing with the joys that January weather brings but I’ve been forward planning!

As a knitwear designer you usually knit a season ahead so that you can release patterns when they’re most seasonally appropriate.  A few weeks ago I finished a little cropped cardigan in a bright blue. I love this style cardigan, I usually keep a little one like this tucked into my handbag in the summer so I can stay warm when the weather changes. It’s simple, fitted and easy to throw over most outfits.

This cardigan was knit in a custom dyed yarn (Midnight Pass color for A Good Yarn, Sarasota) in Madelinetosh Tosh Light. They gave me a couple of skeins last summer to play with and this cardigan is the end result.

I’ll be releasing this pattern in the middle of next month once I’ve finished the layout. Plus hopefully you’ll have enough hint of spring that you’ll want to celebrate with a lightweight knit :-)

  1. Beautiful summer cardi, Carol. I used this same yarn and color-way (I’m on Siesta Key) to knit a baby cardi (E-Z’s baby surprise jacket) and a tiny pair of baby ‘mary jane’s’ (Ysolda’s ‘tiny shoes’) last year. Love this yarn and color. Looking forward to your pattern release – I might just have to buy more of this yarn!
