      Carpino by Carol Feller...

      This pullover is a comfy looking top down raglan style... but the construction is not quite standard raglan shoulder shaping. It begins with the top of the sleeves a bit wider than usual and a slower rate of increase which lends itself to more of a saddle shoulder shape. The front has a decorative honeycomb lace panel ...adding a little pizzaz...which continues right down to the hem of the body with the very gentle shaping occurring at the center of the back.

        Our Featured Yarn...

        With the crisp cool scent of fall in the air, we are excited to introduce Fine Donegal,  a new light weight, tweed, 95% wool, 5% cashmere blend from Debbie Bliss, which comes in 16 colours!DB_FD

        The smallest size of this pattern calls for 3 balls and the largest size calls for just 5.

        This pairing of yarn and pattern will create a wonderful layering garment that is beautiful with jeans or pretty skirts. A truly versatile knit for the upcoming season. SMset
