Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton

for Universal Yarn   2013


We saw this in person at TNNA in June 2013 and it was a showstopper. It literally stopped people in the aisles. Some looked like they were going to fall to their knees. We certainly wanted to.

You make the lower body sideways in a long strip, and then pick up along the lower and upper edges and work the Woven Stripe pattern. This is far easier than it looks, because it just involves knitting the Poems Puzzle into the fabric; that variegated novelty yarn (it's like pre-bought I-cord) does all the heavy lifting.

This design is one of eight from the Poems Windfall book by Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton, published by Universal Yarns (Wisdom Yarns Book 4), available for only $16.99.

Hamilton has also designed a wonderful laptop cover (Alcott, available here) that can introduce you to the easy yarn weaving technique that makes this cardigan so spectacular.
