Carmadine


 New pattern release! Carmadine is an adorable raglan cardigan knit with it's own blooming bed of flowers and sweet asymmetrical shawl collar.


This little sweater all started with a few balls of red Debbie Bliss Cashmerino that I just could not pass by. The bright red just seemed to celebrate the beginning of spring and the longer days of tiny sprouts poking up through the ground opening their leaves to the burgeoning sunlight. It is ironic that a sweater designed for the spring is finally ready to leave my studio in the half light of a November morning, when the partially bare trees shake in the chill of a stormy sky. But it also seems appropriate for this garden lover to release a tiny bed of flowers in the beginning of the winter, what better way to get through the dark months than with bright red cashmere flowers?


This cardigan is worked from the bottom up, flat, and then joined at the underarms to work the raglan yoke. The flower pattern is worked along the bottom edge with corresponding bobble blooms on the bottom sleeves. The sample is a 3-6 month size modeled by the adorable Emarie and I am assured that a mid photo shoot nap time indicates she was infinitely cozy.

You can find this pattern on Ravelry
