New Threads FRIDAY!

Chic Knits Beryl

Pattern: Chic Knits
Designer: Bonne Marie Burns
Yarn: Cascade *220 Superwash*
Color: Blue Velvet
Gauge: 18 sts/24 rows over 4"
Needles: #8

I'm so happy that the temperatures have truly become my friend here in the Big Windy. 55 is forecast for today's high; right now as I sit here with my morning coffee, it's 44 and my tiny fingers are chilly!

Love That!

Bring out the wool! Bring on the FUN!

The sweater you see above is something I've been wanting for a long time and I finally made it. It uses the quick gauge of 4.5 sts per inch and is great for many of the wonderful aran weight yarns out there. I used a smooth matte one for the sample but have already got my hands on some yarn with a little more 'tude for another. The Beryl design would look great in many of the yarns from our beloved smaller producers like Bartlett, Beaverslide and more.

I'm already making Nr. 2 using Oatmeal colored Barlett fisherman's wool and am going to use natural brown horn buttons for the finishing POP. This is a look that can go beautifully casual or formal depending on the yarn chosen. [Read more details below...]

The sweater is knit in one piece to the arm area with set-in sleeves. Beryl is trimmed with texture: Seed St and a flat pique rib add interest without bulk. A curved scoop flatters and highlights the neckline area. Instructions included for 3/4 & long vented-cuff sleeves. Sweater below shown in sz. 38 on a sz. 36 model.
