Amelie is an open-front shawl collar cardigan with twisted rib details, including a Seven Sisters cable down the center back. The collar can be worn up or rolled down. Its pieces are knit flat and feature an interesting (but not difficult) construction. The fronts are made of one long piece that's draped up and around the neck. The back is knit top-down by picking up stitches along the back neck of that piece. A background of reverse stockinette stitch offsets the twisted stitches. Slip stitches form a neat edge on fronts, sleeve cuffs and sweater bottom. Pattern includes schematics with measurements for all pieces.

I've been blissfully obsessed with creating things since way back when my legs were too short to reach the floor while sitting at a table. I LOVE to knit (and sew, and have been meaning to learn a little more crochet...). Aside from my crafty obsessions, I adore books, audio books, feeding the people I love, colors, nature, playing outside, a good nights sleep, learning new things, daydreaming, pondering the ridiculousness of the world, nerdy history and science related books/shows/movies, how I feel after vigorous activity, finding new things to love, catching glimpses of what the world looks like through my daughter's eyes, cute furry animals, this list could go on and on .... I think the online community for crafty people is amazing, and I'm so glad to be a part of it. =)
