Two new pattern releases today! And these are quite special as these are my first garment pieces! Let's start with the first of the first...

Huatau Cardigan

The Huatau Cardigan is a crop-length, dolman sleeve, open and breezy cardigan, perfect for throwing on your shoulders on slightly chilly days.

Whakamārie Top

Whakamārie is a drop sleeve top with a center panel comprising of lace and cables on the front side. Waist shaping adds a flattering silhouette. The bottom portion of the top, depending on your measurements, may have negative to no ease, but the bust area allows for 4” of positive ease. Stitches are picking up for the arm bands for I-cord finishing and at the bottom of the garment, for the ribbing. Light and airy, this makes for a lovely summer top.

Pattern includes instructions for knitting this both flat (seamed) and in the round (seamless) as well as instructions for lengthening the top. Available in English and Spanish on Ravelry.
