Ninian is a new design of mine that was just published on a Japanese site called Amirisu.
This is only the 2nd issue of the webzine and I was honored to be asked to be a part of it. I actually met one of the team members of Amirisu this past Fall when I taught at Squam Italia. In fact she even did a little interview with Ysolda and I when we were there and you can find that in this issue too!

Ninian is a simple and versatile sweater knit in laceweight yarn and featuring a well known Shetland lace pattern on the front. It is worked from the bottom up in one piece separating at the underarms to work the back and front flat. Stitches are then picked up from the armhole and short rows are used to shape the sleeve cap (you know how much I like that kind of sleeve cap)!

The yarn is Cima from Shibui Knits and was new to me. I loved it! It’s an alpaca/merino blend and incredibly soft.
