Holiday 19: Sharing the Warmth of Wool

Holiday 19: Sharing the Warmth of Wool

The sound of rain, the nip of a chilly breeze, the smell of fireplace smoke mixed with damp earth -- these things remind us that it’s wintertime in the Pacific Northwest.   We celebrate this cooler season, not only for the sparse beauty it brings, but also for the ample opportunity it grants us to dig deep into the cedar chest and pull out all of the cozy woolens for ourselves and those we love.   Our Holiday 19 collection, too, celebrates this time of bundling up, of sharing the warmth of wool with those you hold dear.

Fall 19 Knitalong: Dividing for Sleeves and Working the Body and Sleeves

Hello again, knitters! Today we’ll be talking about separating off your Cilfor sleeve stitches and getting into the main garment knitting of your sweater. Since Cilfor is knit from the top down, you’ll need to separate stitches from the yoke to create openings for the sleeves. This separation happens after all of the yoke increases are worked in a brief section of the pattern called “Divide for Body and Sleeves.” Follow this section closely, being sure to remove markers as you go. You may have wondered why the pattern required waste yarn; the waste yarn is used to hold on...
