New Pattern! Elevé Pullover in Knitscene Summer 2015

Written by Sarah. Posted in design, FO, knits, KYC Presents, sweater

My newest pattern is here! I’m so excited to show you the Elevé Pullover.

This lightweight, cropped sweater is all about geometrics. Elevé features stranded colorwork, intarsia, and saddle shoulders. It’s knit flat with Rowan Wool Cotton. This is kind of my take on a modern Cosby sweater. The shape and colors bring a fresh look to that iconic design. And, of course, there are triangles.

I imagine wearing this with high-waisted shorts but how cute would it look over a maxi dress? I’m really psyched about this top. It feels very true to my style.

I’ve been going on and on about making Exeter my dream Rhinebeck sweater (though I’m positive I won’t have time to finish it). But after seeing the Benton that Jen at Grainline Studio made has really got me craving this beautiful sweater. It’s so simple yet really striking and I love how easy it is to wear. Perfect addition to my uniform of skinny jeans/button down/boots. The full post on Jen’s sweater is here. God, she’s talented!

>>  Jon really wants to get a drone. He’s kind of obsessed with the idea which has me rolling my eyes a lot. I hate to say “boys and their toys” (girls like gizmos, too!) but mine seems to REALLY like the gadgets. This video of a ram vs. a drone feels very close to my heart right now.

>> Tips on how to weave in your ends. I’ve been knitting for 10 years and I’m still not happy with my finishing techniques. These photos are going to be very helpful!

>> Amy’s got a GREAT post about how to choose your first sweater pattern. Choosing to tackle your first sweater is a big leap and it can be very daunting. This is solid advice!

>> Be sure to enter the Kettle Yarn Co giveaway! You can win five skeins of Wimbledon (which would put your well on your way to making your own Creamsicle)!

>> The cutest Vince star ever is Winter the lamb.

>>This New York Times article stirred things up on Twitter yesterday. I like Josh’s work a lot and it was great to hear more about his work at Fashion Week. It’s just that tired grandma comparison that really gets knitters upset!

So much knitting to do this week! Sweater season is almost upon us! What do you have on the needles?
