I simply could not resist this spotlight today as it features my name and can be found in the wonderful new Fall 2011 issue of Twist Collective as an advertisement. While this new issue is chock full of wonderful designs, I must admit I’m a tiny bit partial to Tina’s Sweater that was designed by Anna Zilboorg for Tina Newton of Blue Moon Fiber Arts.
Anna Zilboorg, reknown knitter and design, created Tina’s Sweater using a diagonal stitch pattern that is alternated with small bobbles and includes instructions for size small to xx-large. To me, this sweater design is reminiscent of the 1940′s and is truly a classic style. I really enjoyed reading Tina Newton’s blog post regarding this sweater and how wonderful to have such a dear friend to design something just for you.
Materials: This project will require 2- 3 skeins of Blue Moon Fiber Arts BFL Sport (or any sport weight yarn that will match the gauge of 24 stitches and 34 rows to equal 4″ (10cm) using stockinette stitch), size US 5 (3.75mm) knitting needles, stitch holders, 7 buttons 3/4″ (19mm) in diameter and a tapestry needle.
Where to Purchase: This pattern can be purchased as an immediate PDF download online at Blue Moon Fiber Arts.
I can’t wait to cast on and think it will be the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe. Happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting everyone!
