New Pattern Release - Salerno

January 17, 2019

We are super excited to be releasing our newest design Salerno, a cosy, top-down sweater that features a relaxed fit around the body and flattering slim-lined sleeves. The fun, woven-stitch pattern used for the body creates little spots of embossed colour that stripe playfully across the fabric.

Salerno was designed using our Top Draw Sock and is held together with our lovely Silk Mohair Lace.  The contrast colours are also Top Draw Sock (now available in half skeins!); however, using leftover sock yarn would be perfect as well.

Pattern Details

Salerno was designed to be worn with 10-13” (25.5-33) cm positive ease around the bust and 1” (2.5) cm around the upper arm.  Since this sweater is very fitted around the upper arm, it is suggested that you select a size that corresponds with that measurement.

Finished Measurements

43 (47, 51, 55, 59, 63, 67, 71)”; 109 (119, 129.5, 140, 150, 160, 170, 180) cm circumference at bust.
11 (11, 12, 13, 14.5, 16.5, 18, 19.5)”; 28 (28, 30.5, 33, 37, 42, 45.5, 49.5) cm circumference at upper arm.

Salerno Kits

We will have Salerno kits available in the shop this Friday.  Kits include:

  • All the yarn you need to make the Salerno sweater in any colour of your choice (you need to select one main colour and three contrast colours).
  • A unique Ravelry download code which will allow you to download a free copy of the pattern.
  • A sweater-sized Skein project bag.

All kits are dyed to order which means they will be shipped around 2-3 weeks after orders have been placed.

KAL


We are also running a  Salerno KAL over on our Ravelry group!  Our cast-on date is today and the KAL will run until March 18.  There will also be prizes for those who meet the dead-line.  ALL YARNS ARE WELCOME!  If you want to go stash diving and use yarn other than Skein, that is totally fine.  So come on over and join us!
