Midding cardigan knitting pattern

Midding!

Hello! I have a new pattern out! Midding is a new cardigan pattern for your needles!

Midding knitting pattern

MIDDING v. intr. feeling the tranquil pleasure of being near a gathering but not quite in it — hovering on the perimeter of a camp fire, chatting outside a party while others dance inside, resting your head in the backseat of a car listening to your friends chatting up front — feeling blissfully invisible yet still fully included, safe in the knowledge that everyone is together and everyone is okay, with all the thrill of being there without the burden of having to be.

Some projects suggest a kind of sweet nostalgia. Midding is a project like that. A classic cardigan shape, with long, fitted sleeves, a straight body, and panels of open cables. This cardigan is worked from the bottom up, with raglan shaping in the yoke, and i-cord finishing at the neck and button bands.

YARN

I used Kettle Yarn Co. Baskerville DK (Exmoor Blueface wool, Gotland wool, silk; 233 m/255 yds per 100g skein) in Dawn colourway; 5 (6, 6, 7, 7, 8) skeins.
If substituting yarn, you will need around 450 (505, 555, 605, 700, 750) g/1050 (1175, 1295, 1410, 1630, 1750) metres/1150 (1285, 1415, 1540, 1785, 1915) yards of DK-weight yarn.

Episode 51: Nancy Marchant Queen of Brioche

Hello!

A little holiday gift for you! Subscribers to the EastLondonKnit Newsletter will get a 20% discount on the pattern until Jan 3rd!

The MIARA HAT is a great pattern for that last minute gift, with 2 options for yarn weight: worsted and sport weight, and 2 sizes in each yarn. The hat can be knit with 2 or more colours, and is a perfect use for those mini skeins, which can be held double or knit at a looser gauge. The pattern features slipped sts and is easily memorised.

You can see all the details about the pattern and buy it here!
