Stefanie Japel learned to knit from her grandma when she was 8 years old. She grew up wearing her sweaters and borrowing the ones she made for other people. Most of these sweaters are raglans, knit in the round from the top. Stefanie continues this sweater-making tradition.
A gifted designer, Stefanie has published three knitting books: Glam Knits, Fitted Knits and From the Top. Her work has appeared in books and publications including Big Girl Knits, Stitch N Bitch Nation, KnitGrrl, Knit Wit, Not Another Teen Knitting Book, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knit.1 and Vogue Knitting. She has designed patterns for Stitch Diva Studios, Southwest Trading Co., JCA Reynolds, Artful Yarns, Tilli Tomas and Mission Falls.
Stefanie's teaching is marked by her infectious enthusiasm and keen eye for detail. Visit her blog for more information: www.stefaniejapel.com.
This is a pattern that I created to be used with the set of Craftsy Designer Collection yarns that I developed in conjunction with Craftsy and Fiesta Yarns. The colors are inspired by the spices saffron, nutmeg, and cinnamon. The photos of this version of the sweater are shown in the Cinnamon colorway.
The design is meant to be easy to knit and easy to wear. It's a great layering piece and will suit any body type.
