Flagstone – new Twist pattern

Posted on | April 16, 2012 | 4 Comments


It feels like forever since I’ve released a new women’s pattern — so it’s with great pleasure that I give you Flagstone, a new design I have in the just released Twist Spring/Summer 2012 issue.  This design incorporates some of my favorite elements — namely pockets, a smattering of lace, and minimal finishing.  The beginning is a little tricky to set up because the lace band and raglan increases need to be established at the same time, but once all the lace stitches are accounted for, it’s pretty smooth sailing from there.

The cardigan is knit from the top down with inset pockets.  After the bulk of the sweater is finished, you pick up stitches all around the fronts and neck to work the thin garter buttonhole and button band.

Unfortunately, I didn’t really have time to take modeled photos of the sweater, but I do have a picture of it on my blocking board.  My husband, ever the precise scientist, helped me stretch it to the right dimensions.  I tend to knit a wee bit tightly when on deadline, but fortunately his methodical  pinning and blocking managed to whip the sweater right into shape.

You can purchase this and other great patterns directly from Twist.

    Congratulations on your new pattern! It’s beautiful.
    Do you prefer to block after sewing seams? I usually block before sewing but that sometimes makes me procrastinate to finish my pieces.
