This week I'll be spotlighting some of the patterns from the Wool People 5 release to better acquaint you with some of the details about the patterns that may not always be apparent from photos alone. Today – the Reverb Cardigan by Tanis Lavallée:

Tanis hails from beautiful Montreal, Canada, and has a knack for garments that are stylish, smart, and fun to knit. Canadians really have a way with sweaters. Reverb is worked seamlessly as a top down raglan – which is a great way to make a sweater, especially for knitters who don't enjoy finishing. The obvious benefit of knitting garments this way is the ability to try on as you work – a great advantage when customizing the sleeve and body lengths of your individual garment. Though the cardigan has no waist shaping, the slimmer fit is achieved with a relatively low amount of ease (+1-3", shown on the model with +1" of  positive ease). The zigzag cables reflect ("reverberate") across the cardigan opening; on the back they combine to create a mirrored panel of diamonds. The cables are simple to work, but have a great effect in their overall combination. This is a great project for both fledgeling and seasoned sweater knitters alike! _________ Resources: Reverb is available as a PDF download at Brooklyn Tweed or Ravelry. The pattern is knit with Shelter yarn, shown here in color Hayloft.


  • Such a pretty cardigan.

  • Agreed – those Canadians definitely have a way with sweaters. :) Love this … and will look forward to more “Canadian” sweaters in future BT pubs.

  • This is one of my favorite designs in the collection! I have yet to knit a cardigan, but this might be my first.

  • I feel like it would actually be so easy to add a little bit of waist shaping to this if you wanted! I lovelovelove this pattern.
