The Diamond Crop Sweater Details

posted by: Amy Small

Meet the Diamond Crop Sweater! This design is intricate, feminine, airy and a wee bit fashion forward with that cropped body length. It was in the running for the spring knitalong and lost by a hair to our other three winners. In the video below, I outline how this sweater is knit and what makes it so darn special. After the video, I've listed out all the yarn and sizing info. There are many ways to knit and customize this design to your liking...and most definitely you can knit this baby longer without a problem! The pattern will go live on Wednesday, July 24th. Please sign up for my email list to be the first to know!

Style Details:

This pattern is written for two style options. Option one is with the Spun Cloud or Sister yarn front and the Wildflower yarn back. Option two is with all over Wildflower. If you choose to do two different Wildflower yarn colors for the front and back, that would also work beautifully.

Beachy Cardi ~ Style and Fit Details

posted by: APC Collaborator

Hi there! I've been having a lot of fun putting together kits for the Beachy Cardi pattern. They'll be available at 8 am EST on Wednesday, June 12 for one week only. The pattern will be exclusive to those that order the kit for about a month too. The pattern comes free with yarn purchase and as always, we are here to help with any knitting guidance you may need as you knit! Check out all the fit details below and to see the available colors, follow this link. If you want to put together a custom kit, feel free to email me at amy@knitcollage.com and I'll help you out! I so hope you'll consider joining in. I plan to knit one of the BRIGHT color combos :) P.S. We have very extremely limited yarn this time around because it has been air shipped so I keep the shipments small. The Spun Cloud is the one that's the lowest! P.P.S. Shipping will be free for this week too - no code needed. Learn more in my video here

Fit details: This style is intended to have an oversized fit. Our model is wearing a size XS/S and has a 36” bust. It’s intended to fit with about 8-12” of positive ease. 

Sizes: XS/S (M/L, XL/XXL)

Finished measurements:

Bust: 47 (59, 71)”/ 119.5(150, 180)cm

Length: 22 ¾ (24 ¾, 26 ¾)”/58 (63, 73)cm

 

Materials:

2 (2, 3) skeins Spun Cloud (100% Wool, approx. 100yds/200g): French Vanilla (MC) shown here (Sadly this color will not be available but many others will!)

1 (1*, 2) mini skein kit of Wildflower (100% Cotton, 60yds/70g): 5 colors, 17 yds each per mini skein for contrast colors. Sweet Dreams color shown here.

* Please note that for size M/L, you may run out of CC2 as you knit with just a few stitches left to knit on (this happened in testing!). If you’re Ok with that from a design perspective, simply attach CC3 and keep knitting. If you want the CC2 rows to be completely knit in CC2, we suggest getting another mini skein kit or a single skein of Wildflower yarn in that color so that you have enough yarn. We will not include extra in the kit and encourage you to knit those few stitches in CC3 should you run out - it won't be too noticeable!

Size US 17 (12mm) circular needle, 40”/101.5cm long

Tapestry needle
