Drape Front Cardigan

New style up in the shop - introducing the Drape Front Cardigan with Lace Cuffs!

I usually begin my process by knitting swatches on my knitting machine.  For me, the garment design is very important, but the creative direction starts with the fabric.  

Needle set-up on the machine.  This is how floats are created - by arranging needles in or out of action. 

Initial notes and scribbles. 
Final Product!

This was taken before I had cleaned up the garment, tying in the yarn ends and all that.   The final piece in the store will not have threads hanging out.

The Drape Front Cardigan is available in my Etsy store now, for $59.

I hope you've enjoyed this bit of behind-the-scenes details of one of my designs.  I am working hard on adding more styles to the store and sharing their stories with you!
