Here’s Hypatia, a lovely cardigan to get you (me) ready for fall knitting. Love the shape, the color. Tell me this doesn’t get you digging for your needles.
Designer Dawn Catanzaro named her piece after an early mathematician–a woman. The sweater is worked side to side, all in one piece, from center front to center front, starting and ending with a simple garter stitch border. The seamless yoke shaping is accomplished with short rows. I love the smooth lines of the yoke, can’t get enough of them. So here’s a detail shot of how the rows and columns fall over the shoulder’s curve. Pretty.
And the streamlined back.
Hypatia is worked in Owl/Tawney. Owl is our latest yarn, a blend of American alpaca and wool. Soft to the touch and sturdy. We love it for just about everything. Owl comes in several natural shades, Tawny being one of them. The color is a mix of white wool and brown and gray alpaca.
