Forsythia Sweater Kit by Jamie Hoffman

$245.00  

This variant is currently sold out.

The Forsythia pattern has a flat, top-down and raglan construction with a cozy garter collar and cuffs and optional front pockets. The cable stitches used throughout the pattern comprise only three stitches at a time and do not require a cable needle. I encourage you to check out my tutorial on how to work cables without a cable needle (link in pattern) if you are unsure of how to use this method.

"When I was developing the cable stitch pattern for Forsythia, I knew I wanted strong stitch definition on a comfy cardigan. Soon after, I found the perfect yarn to match the pattern. Elder, a light worsted base from Ritual Dyes, has a gorgeous 2-ply twist that contributes even more definition than I’d expected. As one person put it, it’s like a stitch within a stitch." -Jamie Hoffman
