Navy Pier available for pre-order

I’m trying something new. While I finish the last details of pattern-writing, my newest pattern will be available for pre-order at 25% off the final price. In theory, this will enable me to pay for tech editing and advertising. (In actuality, there is no way of knowing whether any pattern will be successful. I’m hoping!)

Navy Pier is a unisex, slightly cropped cardigan for babies, toddlers, children, and tweens from newborn to 12 years. It’s knitted in two shades of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted, one variegated and one solid. (Obviously you could substitute any worsted weight yarn that will get you a gauge of 18 stitches over four inches, but I can’t imagine why anyone would want to use anything but Shepherd Worsted. It is SO LOVELY and I am mildly obsessed with it right now.)

After I knitted the Grace-sized sweater shown above, I knitted a Sam-sized version. I am planning the photo shoot now, and should have something to show soon! The colors are OMG AMAZING (go figure, more Shepherd Worsted), and I just need to decide on buttons.

I am seeking two or three more advance/test knitters for this pattern, so please email me if you’d like to knit it early, for free! I would ask you to try to finish by a certain date, and to give me feedback.

If you’d like to knit it in a more leisurely fashion, you may buy now and get the discount price. A PDF with yarn and gauge information will be available for immediate download, and on November 1st you will receive an update with the complete pattern.

    What an awesome design: cute and functional. Love your little model too.

    What a clever idea to do a pre-sales to cover the tech editing costs. All the very best and let us know how it goes!
