Girls in the out-of-doors

brookback

Two great patterns up on Ravelry this week, both worked in Q yarns. Above,  designed by Dani Sunshine, is Brook, a round yoke pullover with a neck that’s subtly shaped with short rows. This is one of those designs that uses a simple technique, two-color garter-stitch segments, to  great affect. The sweater is knitted in Chickadee Gingerbread, with Honey accents (yum). I love that this girl pullover is worked in rich autumn-forest colors, perfect, I think, for a lively young lady.

And more forest matters: Immie (below) explores the woodland in her Fawn hooded cardi and striped legwarmers. More pretty colors to blend with the September landscape: The hoodie is knitted in Puffin, colors Twig/Chanterelle/Clay, and the striped legwarmers are in Chickadee, same palette, plus Petal, for a feminine touch.

This top-and-bottom duo is the work of Carrie Hoge. As is often the case, Carrie makes good use, of simple stitches, stockinette plus garter. Check the cuff and border detail below.
