We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Joelle Meier Rioux

for Classic Elite Yarns   2008

"Embrace" Cardigan

Here is something magnificently unusual and yet very satisfying to work. Seldom are a design and the yarn called for so interdependent. Meier Rioux has you wind each of the two skeins into balls beginning with the darkest part of the colourway, and knit the fronts out to the side seams; sleeves are next, from the cap down; then you alternate the balls on the back (knitted from hem up). The result is striking, flattering, painterly, knitterly-- truly remarkable. Closure options are up to you; a stickpin is perfect. (N.B. This yarn has been discontinued; just try to match the gauge requirements, and maybe you'll land up with something even better-- Ed.)
