Véronique

Today finally feels like there is a hint of Spring in the air in New England!  I even saw some daffodils pushing their way through the few scraps of bare soil we have (not in my garden sadly)!

So I’m going to encourage it along by releasing a spring pattern!

This is Véronique! Worked in a beautiful yarn that I was introduced to on my first visit to Tolt Yarn and Wool. It is produced by Yarn On The House (or YOTH for short), a brother and sister team also based in the Seattle area. YOTH Yarns are milled in the US, and dyed at Saco River Dyehouse in Maine.

I used Big Sister, their DK weight for this sweater. It has amazing stitch definition and the colour palette is to dye for in my opinion. You can purchase this yarn through the Tolt website too.

Kathy Cadigan was the photographer for this one and her gorgeous daughter the model. Huge thanks goes to them both for this beautiful collection of images!

I chose to work with a fairly dense gauge to really maximize the crispness of the stitch definition and to keep the sweater fitted looking rather than loose.

Véronique is worked bottom up with the body and sleeves joining at the underarm. The yoke is a mixture of a simultaneous set in sleeve and saddle shoulder construction. Lots of fun to knit!

Stay tuned for a possible KAL for this sweater!
