Hello! I’ve been neglectful again. I have good reason, though. November is a huge month for me! Today, I am releasing the second of my 4 patterns due to come out this month!
Migration is a girls’ cardigan sized from 6m to size 10.
This pattern is a top down raglan, with “0” cable and garter details. It has a slight A line shape. Buttons are worked the depth of the raglan on the sample, but could be worked the entire length if one wanted.
The cable and garter detail on the front is repeated on the back, as well. The shifting cables creates a garter expanse between the center of the cables on both the back and front which flows into the the garter edging. The pattern draws it’s name from the shifting of these cables as they form a “v” reminiscent of a flock of migratory birds.
Being that this cardigan is top down and garter edged, there is really minimal finishing. You weave in the ends, add buttons, and block. No picking up stitches, no collar to make, no hem to fold.
The yarn! I nearly forgot to mention the yarn. Migration is knit up in Sunshine Yarns Merino Sport. What a wonderful sport weight yarn. It is so wonderfully soft and has amazing stitch definition. The cables and garter really pop!
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out this new pattern. I will be posting again soon. My last two patterns this month will be released together next week! I hope to see you then 🙂
