This week, we are really excited to be releasing a new pattern! Cruiser is a batwing cardigan that is knit seamlessly from the top down using a unique, short-row construction. The body and sleeves are knit at the same time, meaning there is no sleeve island (yay!), and there is lots of relaxing Garter Stitch.
Cruiser was designed to be worn with 4-6” (10-15 cm) positive ease around the bust. As this design is a batwing shape, there is plenty of room around the upper arm. If you prefer to size down for less ease, you can easily do so by knitting the next size down.
This design uses our Mohair Silk lace, held together with our Uptown Sock. This Friday, we are offering to custom dye both of these bases in any colourway you choose! These yarns will be dyed next week and shipped out as soon as they are dry, so you can cast on your Cruiser cardigans ASAP. If you buy the yarn for this design, you will also receive a free copy of the pattern. All the information about the pattern and yardage requirements can be found via Ravelry.
Of course, all our newsletter subscribers receive 20% off all new-release patterns. So, if you haven't already, please sign up to get your code on release day!
Our Dyed To Order yarns and pattern go live Friday 17th April. We hope you enjoy and cant wait to see your Cruisers!
