A cosy pullover with cables and lace details all wrapped up in Nua Worsted? It can only be the latest design by Joan Forgione. To celebrate we’ve also got a giveaway you won’t want to miss.
Then read on:
Oxalis is a raglan pullover knit from the top down with a bit of positive ease. For those of you just joining us, here at Stolen Stitches, we are fans of the raglan top-down technique but if you haven’t tried it before please, take our word for it and give it a try. If you need a little help you can always join Carol over here.
Oxalis begins with a cosy turtleneck, before continuing seamlessly with a delicate cable and lace pattern along the sleeves and a cable detail along each side of the body. We think this is the perfect compliment to Nua worsted as the sleeve details give this sweater a touch of elegance while allowing the main body of the sweater to show off the rusticly soft texture of Nua Worsted.
Although the pattern is written for a slightly cropped body, Oxalis can easily be lengthened. Joan has provided detailed pattern instructions along with video support. Joan also works through the choice of a tubular cast-on or an alternate 1×1 long-tail cast-on so that you can choose the best cast on for you.
To celebrate the release of this sweater we are giving away 10 skeins of Nua Worsted and the pattern to one lucky knitter.
All you have to do is leave a comment on the blog telling us what colour you would choose to knit your Oxalis sweater in.
Yes, folks, it is that easy.
We will be choosing a winner on November 6th. (Note – if the winner doesn’t respond within 24 hours a second winner will be chosen).
Oh, and if you are a Stolen Stitches Newsletter subscriber there is a nice little treat in store for you too!
