We can't wait for spring!

Can you tell? We can’t wait for spring to arrive. So we decided to release two patterns early! Both are from the upcoming book Highland Summer and are now available on Ravelry.

Una is an elegant, all occasion cardigan to welcome the warmer weather. It’s made in Sandpiper, where 8 plies of multi-dyed strands are twisted together to create colorways with depth and interest. This is the perfect project to start now to be ready for the warmer weather ahead.
 

Bonnie is a fun-to-knit pattern worked in Silky Alpaca Lace, with an easy to remember stitch pattern. What a stunning piece to wear! And notice the fringe? A win-win! Fringe is totally on trend and makes for no ends to weave in.


Just for fun, and because we love spring, leave us a comment, telling us which of these patterns you'd like to knit, and we'll choose a winner. Be sure to leave your Ravelry username or another way for us to contact you. We'll send the winner (selected randomly) a link valid for any one free CEY pattern! The deadline to enter is Sunday, March 13th, at 2:00am eastern time – which is exactly when we change the clocks to Daylight Savings Time on the east coast – a sure sign that spring is just around the corner.

So while it's still too early to really go outside and dig in the dirt, know that spring is on the way and cast on one of these beautiful pieces!

  2. I'd like to knit Bonnie. Ripples really appeal to me right now.

  3. I love Una as I live in a hot climate but still need to layer in "freezing" stores and restaurants / it would be perfect with a little sleeveless shell.

  6. I love Bonnie. I'm working hard at losing weight and between the pattern and the fringe I can see that being a great wardrobe piece as I go from point A to point B.

  7. Bonnie, even though I'm not sure I'd like fringe dangling on my arms. I think it's those lovely rippled stripes...

  8. I like Sandpiper. A summer cardigan is so useful, and it doesn't hurt that it's a beautiful sweater as well!

  13. Una. Because spring and summer require quick change artistry- sweater on sweater off-buttoned -unbuttoned. I haven't knit with Sandpiper, yet. I love when color becomes texture!
