Pattern on Ravelry: Tierney
Designer: Andi Satterlund
Sizes Included: XS (S, M, L, 1X, 2X, 3X)
About the Pattern: I wanted a basic but not-too-plain cardigan with ¾-length sleeves and knit in a cool plant fiber. I chose Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy, a DK-weight cotton, hemp, and rayon blend; I picked out a stitch pattern that I had rejected for a previous project but still loved; and I got to work creating my new pattern Tierney! The cardigan is knit starting with the textured waistband, which is knit from side to side. I originally knit a swatch with this stitch pattern for a different project. That project was a bad match for it, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it and found the perfect home for it on Tierney. The stitch pattern is made up of eyelets and double-wrapped stitches, and it makes a really interesting dense-but-open fabric that has the right amount of structure for a waistband.
Last Note: When this pattern sample was still a work in progress, I took it on Vacation with me to Las Vegas, and all I could think about was how I wished I could have this cardigan finished and available to wear and something else to knit on because Tierney would have looked perfect with every outfit I packed. Since completing it, it’s quickly become a staple of my summer wardrobe.
