Meris designer Elizabeth Doherty will be hosting a Meris KAL starting July 9. If ever there was a sweater to knit in a group, this is the one. Its top-down, set-in sleeve construction is unusual. Not hard, just unusual. And it’s a sweater of many a lovely knitterly detail: Sloped shoulders via short rows, dart shaping, and I-cord trim. Elizabeth is an expert knitter and she’s already offering suggestions on fit and techniques on our Ravelry group. A great way to warm up for the project. You can also read her thoughtful comments on the sweater and her ideas on top-down fitting on her blog, bluebeestudio, and see more pictures of the cardigan and its details on our June 15 blog.
Meris is worked in Finch, a lanky 4-ply with great bounce and drape, in color Sorbet. But from a brief look at the starting discussion, people are planning to knit the sweater in Winesap, Peacock, Bird’s Egg, Crocus–and more. All great choices.
If you haven’t already seen Elizabeth’s exquisite neck piece Millrace in our scarf collection, you can see it here.
Many thanks, Elizabeth, for setting up this KAL–much appreciated!
