Off the Needles: Audrey

 This design has been a labour of love. I have been dying to share it with you since I bound off and now, after changing the design concept twice (to better display the yarn), one heart stopping yarn shortage (thank you Felicia for saving the day), one name change (thank you Amy and then Shannon :), two photo shoots (one indoor, one outdoor ~ thanks luv), and finally... I can.

 Meet Audrey, a garter stitch cardigan knit from the top down. She has a slip stitch ribbing between the raglan increases and along the sides of the body that creates a really flattering false seam. 

I seem to be on a garter stitch kick as of late and can you blame me? It really compliments the tonality of hand dyed yarns and when you use SweetGeorgia as much as I do you don't want anything to take away from the brilliantly rich colours that Felicia hand dyes. 

I hope you like her :)

You can find the details of this pattern HERE

  2. ohmygosh. i LOVE her! (and you knew that!) ;) gorgeous pics! did the lovely shannon do them for you? beautiful sweater. and as soon as a can, i'm casting on for it. so there ;) xo

  3. Oh, what a lovely cardigan. Garter stitch often gets a bad reputation but I agree with you. It can create such a pretty fabric and turn a simple pattern into something sweet (like Audrey). : )

  4. This is so great! Absolutely gorgeous!

  5. Wow, I love this pattern! I will definitively be knitting Audrey this fall! Thank you for another great pattern!
