a tern for every season

Jul 25, 2016 :: by Leila Raabe

As the summer rolls on we can't help but think ahead toward the approaching seasonal shift. No matter how simple a garment, it takes time to plan, work on, and complete a sweater to have ready when the air turns, the nights shift, and we bid our linens and cottons adieu 'til next year.

We often talk about how a wool/silk yarn like Tern is an excellent choice for projects with this transitional element in mind. It's lightweight, warm, but not too warm. The silk content gives not only that gorgeous sheen, it also lends its lightness. Tern is agreeable to warding off those first chills (as well as those that linger at the far end of the cold season) without going overboard.

Today, we celebrate that versatility by kicking off a week-long collection of five patterns: Tern 2016, aka Tern Week.

What is Tern Week? This collection focuses on designs knitted in Tern. Each day this week we'll have a new pattern release, with the option to buy all five patterns as a bundle at any time (and we'll surprise you with a new pattern every day—an update will be emailed to you once the new pattern goes live). Or, you can wait until each single pattern is revealed, then purchase your fav(s) at will. The choice is all yours.

Pictured above is our first reveal for Monday: Andromeda, designed by Pam Allen, a floating open-front cardigan worked from the top down, with shapely front panels in garter stitch, a raglan yoke, and back darts forming its a-line silhouette. This pretty cardigan's sleeves are worked from the top down and finished in garter stitch. All around, a breezy project from start to finish.

Stay tuned for our next patterns we have to share with you all week long—Tern Week is just getting started, and we can't wait to show you what's coming next.
