I'm Andrea and I make great knitting patterns! I live on Vancouver Island in Canada, where I knit, design, and ride my bike. I love the functionality and beauty of knitting and knit everything from head to toe.
My patterns have been published in Brooklyn Tweed Wool People, Twist Collective, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knitty, and other publications, as well as independently. I'm working on a book called Rugged Knits with Interweave that's scheduled to come out in the spring of 2016.
All of my independently-published patterns have been thoroughly tested and edited for clarity and accuracy.
This sweater was designed to the exact specifications of a Pacific Northwest outdoorsman who wanted practical, durable, winter wear. Super bulky wool and tightly-knit ribbing create a very warm and insulating fabric.
Comfortable and practical, Plantago is slim-fitting with enough stretch in the fabric to give the wearer ease of movement. The tall fold-over collar provides versatile warmth: zip it up completely for a cowl collar, unzip it a bit to allow the collar to lay flat, or unzip completely to cool down.
Worked at a huge gauge, it knits up quickly and seamlessly, with easy raglan yoke shaping.
14 sts/15 rows = 4 in/10 cm in unstretched 1x1 rib using larger needle
* Given gauge is tighter than recommended on the ball band, so choose a yarn that recommends a gauge of 10 stitches = 4 in/10 cm.
