New Pattern! Miala

Hello!

I have a new pattern out!

MIALA is an easy-to-knit version of the classic Icelandic-style sweater, but instead of using two colours for stranded knitting, Miala uses slipped stitches, increases and decreases to make a pretty colourwork yoke. Worked in a thick aran yarn, this sweater knits up quickly and is a classic shape; perfect for cosy autumnal walks, or curling up in front of the fire.

Miala knitting pattern

Chest circumference: 83 (91.5, 103, 111.5, 123)(131.5, 143, 151.5, 163) cm/ 32.75 (36, 40.5, 44, 48.5)(51.75, 56.25, 59.75, 64.25) inches

The sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down, so is easily made longer or shorter.

Hello and happy Friday to you!

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.

Midding_handknit_pattern_by_Renee_Callahan

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.
