Last month I was lucky enough to attend the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival (aka Rhinebeck) for the very first time. I saw lots of lovely knitters in gorgeous sweaters.
And the weather was perfect!
I’m happy to announce the release of my first sweater pattern this season, the Vixen Sweater.
This mock turtleneck is named after the Vixen Geyser in Yellowstone National Park. The geyser is named because of it’s temperamental, feisty nature, like a fox!
In the Vixen Sweater pattern, Rowan Felted Tweed DK is paired with Rowan Kidsilk Haze which adds a touch of cozy glamour to the sporty stripes of this simple, relaxed, top town raglan sweater.
Because there’s no waist shaping, it’s easy to adjust this pattern to your own preferences. Lengthen or shorten the neck, add or subtract length by using more or less stripes.
You’ll want to make sure you end with a stretch bind-off for the hem. Here’s a video tutorial for the Russian bind-off.
