Linen for April

Launched a new cardi on Ravelry today, Spring Leaf. This came together very quickly with this idea… I wondered if I could use a bit of shawl shaping to construct the back of a cardigan?


The answer was yes. Briefly, there’s a bit of bottom-up shawl construction with  simultaneous short rows. (It’s much easier than it sounds!) The 3/4-sleeves and raw edges in a linen-cotton blend that blocks out beautifully, is going to be one I’ll be making again.

From now until the end of day (EDT), Sunday, April 30th, it’s 25% off – no coupon code necessary.

When my daughter and I shot this (she’s the model), a flock of seagulls took off just as she turned toward them. I love when the unexpected happens!
