Its finally Autumn...

Explore the colors of the changing season with the very special Autumn Grasses Cardigan, designed by Jane Thornley. This is Jane's design story..."There’s something about a shawled cardigan that brings out the romantic in me: visions of Victorian heroines prowling grassy heaths and windswept moors abound. But here my romantic heroine goes modern with a little bohemian stirred into the mix. In this tale, she knits herself a caped cardigan suitable for casual weekends or for an extra layer of textury warmth, thinking to herself that she might meet a new love wearing such a garment or, better still, learn to be content in her own company."

This cardigan is knit in a textury mix of DK-weight yarns on size 5mm/US8 needles in a play of seed, garter, and simple openwork stitches sprinkled with bobbles. Choose the bolero-shaped version or the longer, hip-skimming, rendition. Sizes for the longer version go from small to bodacious (up to size 56 in hip, suitable for plus sizes).

Purchase any 5 of Jane's patterns and you'll receive a complimentary hank of Cherry Tree Hill yarn! The purchase of one of Jane's Books counts as 2 Patterns.
