Pattern Details

I grew up in rural Maine and have been a die-hard outdoorsy type my whole life. It seemed natural to start fall off with a cardigan I can imagine slipping on for a favorite hike through some beautiful foliage. Cables, a gorgeous tweedy wool, a little bit of openwork to keep things from being too heavy. Acorn Trail is a great layering piece, and a knockout on its own. Acorn Trail is worked in pieces, from the bottom up, in Harrisville’s incredibly beautiful New England Highland. This is a sturdy, wool-lover’s wool, and the cardigan makes the most of its texture in intricate cable and lace panels. Despite the detailed look, the sweater is easy to modify since the stitch patterning rests on a simple Stockinette base. I can’t recommend this luscious tweedy yarn highly enough, but if you’d like to substitute you’ll need approximately 703 (783, 851, 905, 975, 1041, 1125, 1215, 1353, 1463) yds / 643 (717, 778, 828, 892, 952, 1029, 1112, 1238, 1339) m.
