Take a closer look!

Mount Merritt is the make. wear. love. fall 2017 retreat design for color goddess Spirit Trail Fiberworks. Jen's yarns blend colors beautifully, with rich, saturated shades and (sometimes, lately) a speckle here or there. I wanted to design something warm, snuggle-worthy, and enveloping - something you'll reach for when the days get cold, or things are overwhelming: So I started with a super-long length, super-cozy worsted yarn (Jen's Luna base), and comfy patch pockets.

I also wanted to provide a canvas for using up a special hank of yarn, so I added a simple slip stitch color pattern at the hem and bottom of the sleeves, echoed on the pockets. I've used a speckled yarn, but please feel free to vary your choices - this is a great place for a super-variegated hank to create a stained-glass effect, or a blazing neon that needs to be used sparingly.

One note about the slip-stitch pattern: While your stitch gauge will stay constant, your row gauge will be compressed - so I advise you not to count rows for the slip-stitch portion of the garment, instead relying on measurements.

Finally, this cardigan is available in the full range of CustomFit's options: Drop shoulder or set-in sleeve construction, and any fit/silhouette/length combination you like.
