When the weather calls for a light-weight sweater..."Pelerine" is the one you'll reach for. This is a sweater that goes as well with jeans as it does with office attire. Flattering and comfortable to wear, a timeless design that will look as good tomorrow as it does today. Knit in two easy pieces, you can start this project today and be done in plenty of time to wear when the first cool days of early fall arrive. There is no shaping in the lace portion of the yoke, making this a good project for learning lace. The sample is shown in Universal Yarns "Renew Wool", a soft & lofty blend of virgin & re-purposed wool. It has just the right amount of warmth while keeping your garment light weight. If I could have only one sweater - this would be it. Not only was the sample fun to knit, the project came together so easily & quickly I was almost sad to be finished! The modeled photos are by Shane Baskin / Blackbox Studios.

I've been a 'crafter' all my life, and especially enjoy fiber arts. My first professional design was published in 2005, and since then I've had my designs published in knit.wear, Knitscene, Creative Knitting, Love of Knitting, Knitcircus, Twist Collective, Three Irish Girls Yarns, Universal Yarns, and Cascade Yarns, along with several books by DRG Publications. When not knitting, thinking about knitting or dreaming up new designs, I love spending time with my husband and pets, in the high plains of Colorado where we live.
