Sprig



Oh how happy I am to say that my new Sprig sweater pattern is now available to purchase.
This pattern has been in the works a long time and I am so excited that it is finally ready!




This is a top-down raglan pullover with a very unique construction. One that I think is fun and will catch you by surprise.

The raglan itself is knit asymmetrically and also paired with an asymmetrical neckband. All of this asymmetry when paired together.. results in a symmetrical sweater. It is tricky that way!

It also includes dart like waist shaping for a flattering fit.


Here is the pattern information for those of you interested:

Stitch markers
Stitch holders
Cable needle
Tapestry needle

Sewing needle and matching thread for optional closure on the sleeves

GAUGE
20 sts/ 28 rows = 4” / 10 cm in St st on US6 / 4 mm needles or size needed for accurate gauge.



Keeping with the botanical theme, a sprig of foliage begins on one side of the neckline and gracefully wraps around one side. My favorite sweater detail is how these little leaves drape over one shoulder.




The other special detail is on the sleeve cuffs. The leafy sprig is mirrored on the cuffs of the sleeves with the leaves wrapping towards the back just like the neckline.



 The pattern also offers an option for a button-loop closure on the sleeve just for fun.


This is a special sweater full of all sorts of fun little botanically inspired details that I hope you will enjoy!


Please remember that this sweater is just a preview of my collection for the upcoming book, Botanical Knits 2. This pattern will only be available individually for a limited time only.

Okay! I liked the Nature Conservancy on Facebook! (I already liked them, just not on social media, lol) I love Sprig - it's soooo pretty! And that Patagonian yarn sounds luscious. Good luck finishing your book!

I absolutely love this sweater, however, I am a little nervous about trying the pattern because of the asymmetrical collar. The look is so cool, however, what does it feel like? Does it feel asymmetrical too and therefore uncomfortable? Let me know! I hope it feels as good as it looks.
