I'm so excited to announce the release of my latest pattern. This is that perfect pattern for that special holiday project.
This Fair Isle style cardigan pattern features a lovely heart stitch yoke that has a refined yet rustic vibe. I created this design intending it to be used for those special occasions such as the holidays or a birthday party, but its versatility makes it great for casual layering too.
This pattern is written in standard U.S. crochet terms for the advanced beginner to intermediate crocheter who is comfortable with simple one color per row color work, different combinations of standard stitches in the same row, decreasing, and working in rows below the usual working row. Pattern comes with 5 size options for all the girls in your life!
Many people helped me to make this pattern possible. This was definitely a team effort. For this pattern I included the following Acknowledgments section:
Thank you so much to all the people that helped me to make this pattern so awesome! Thanks to Cecilia De Jesus, my co-worker, who insisted that the heart row be in the yoke and not around the bottom; while it gave me headaches to get the stitch counts correct to do so, the finished result made it all worth it. Thank you to Shibui Knits for yarn support; their Baby Alpaca DK is the most scrumptiously soft yarn ever! Thank you to Joanne Scrace for her amazingly quick technical editing skills. Thanks also to my awesome testers Lexi Suby and Gail Dvorchak. Finally, thank you to Amanda Tipton for the beautiful photography.
