FALL FASHION INSPIRATION

Just got back from a weekend in Rhinebeck and the NY Sheep and Wool festival. I saw lots of people wearing knit and crochet fashion. So many colors, so many fibers, a feast and overindulgence of inspiration!

I saw some cute, well put together outfits, with a sweater at the center of it all. This prompted me to create a mood board built around one of my new fall design: Twin Peaks Cardi, pattern 2056.
You can see more photos of this sweater on Ravelry (and order a digital copy there, too).


The yarn used is super soft Seda Rustica, a blend of rustic silk and baby llama. I designed 11 rich colors to select from. Check those out here. It is worked from the bottom up in one piece with no side seams. The traveling ribs form a triangle on each side and continue under the arms. The instructions are given as charts.

Do you like to work from charts, or do they confuse you?
