New Pattern-Lady Wren

Linking up with Ginny today for Yarn Along and I’m so excited to announce that my newest pattern Lady Wren is now available for purchase!  IMG_2570Lady Wren is the perfect layering piece for warmer months. Knit in soft and breathable Knit Picks Comfy Worsted, this top down cardigan features short sleeves and a beautiful combination of Stockinette, Irish Moss and Seed stitches. The sweater begins with a provisional cast on at the neck, increases for the yoke, and sleeve stitches are removed to waste yarn after dividing while the rest of the cardigan is worked to the lower edge. Notes are included to adjust the length for a custom fit. Stitches are picked up and a decorative Seed stitch band is worked to finish the front with a flourish. Finally, sleeves stitches are replaced and several rows are worked to finish. This is a layering piece, so positive ease of 2-4″ larger than actual bust size is recommended.

Simple enough for a beginning knitter, this pattern works up amazingly fast—you’ll be wearing your sweater in no time!

Required skills include provisional cast on to begin, right lifted increases and picking up and knitting stitches for the edging and sleeves.

  1. I was so excited to see your email this morning and to read that you now have an adult version of Baby Wren, I am planning on knitting this for wee Porter and now I can knit one for his mama too.

  2. Beautiful sweater! I think this will work well for some yarn I plan on spinning this winter. I added it to my favorites and will be purchasing for sure!

    • Ooooh Donna! I would love to see it knit up in some handspun! How gorgeous will that be? Be sure to share pics–I’d love to see! Thanks for your comment!

    • Thank you! I was just checking out your project by way of FB–I started an Abalone ages ago and never finished it. I’ll be excited to see yours when it’s done!

  3. Wowzer this cardigan is beautiful! I love the design details and the colour choices in your various fisnihed pieces! I’ve added this right to my ravelry library and I have some ideas for yarn to use already :p I will treat myself to the pattern soon after I’ve made more progress with my current WIPS I think 🙂 jenny xx

  4. I’m thinking this would make a cozy winter-time layering piece too! I would wear it over a long sleeve t-shirt or a turtle neck it the middle of January. 🙂
