Feature Pattern of the Week - Garnered

Garnered by Alicia Plummer
Quince & Co. Osprey, color Honey

We are loving Garnered, one of the latest patterns by talented knitwear designer Alicia Plummer. Based in Maine, Alicia designs patterns to create something beautiful & tell stories with her hands through each stitch pattern. Her philosophy is to create knits that are full of life & give joy to others.

Garnered is a gorgeous pullover that features a Windblown Lace stitch, elbow length sleeves & a flattering turtleneck. The front and back are knit flat & then joined at the shoulders with a 3 needle bind off. The sides are then seamed with the sleeves picked up and knit in the round.

The pullover shown in the photo is knit in Quince & Co. Osprey, a heavy worsted/aran weight yarn spun from 100% American wool. The relaxed twist gives this soft yarn a cozy, squishy hand. It has a wonderful, cozy feel.

The pattern also includes instructions for a linen version of the pullover that features a flattering boatneck. This warm weather version is knit with Quince & Co. Kestrel. Kestrel is a soft, linen yarn with an unique ribbon structure that lends a slight texture to simple knits & purls. It is spun in Italy from organic, Belgium-grown linen & has a beautiful drape.
