Maybe you've heard that Knit Picks has released some e books. I was fortunate to be able to work on one of the patterns.
I knit the Yarrow Blouse, in the Oregon Coast Heather colorway of Shadow.
Yep, the entire sweater is knit in laceweight yarn.
The pattern combined some basic and lace knitting techniques with some basic crochet, for an end result that works very well with the e book it's published in.
Okay, I admit it, this pattern does not suit my personal aesthetic, but it is well designed, and for someone whose aesthetic it does suit, it is a lovely sweater.
As always, the yarn is soft and lovely. The depth of color in this colorway was also surprising, and very pleasing, to me. In addition to the light brown, there are also notes of pink, gray, and green. The heathers that Knit Picks puts out are always so lovely, with a greater than expected depth.
It also looks like the other patterns in the American Prairie eBook are lovely as well. And for the price, it looks like a good purchase.
