Woodbine is the answer to my fondest sweater dreams - easy to knit, all in one piece, and flattering on a pear-shaped body. Specs: Top-down raglan with broken rib stitch on bodice, flowing into arched lace under bust and below elbow. Button loop closure incorporated into band. Blending these two patterns creates a form-hugging bodice that gently flares away from the body below the bust, creating a pleasing silhouette. The sleeves can be worked two ways; slightly flared or more traditional. (Both sleeve styles are shown in the photo) Difficulty Rating: Intermediate. Techniques used include increase/decrease, traveling stitch lace, double decrease, knitting in the round, fudging. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Stockinette stitch Raglan shaping Beginner lace GAUGE 18 stitches & 24 rows = 4" in broken rib pattern SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Small (36"); Medium (40"); Large (44") XL (48"). There is 2" of ease included in the finished measurements. A note about scalability: Garment scale is based on the 8 stitch pattern repeat (*p3, k5*). Within reason, adding 8-stitch repeats to any section will increase it by 2" SUGGESTED YARN 1450 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Elann Peruvian Highland Wool

It seems like I’ve always been a fiber junkie. My maternal grandmother taught me to sew and crochet when I was a little girl. In the early 1990s, I studied fashion design at Washington University in St. Louis and opened my first fiber-related business - Studio #96 in St. Charles, Missouri. I worked for several years with an artist who painted original designs on silk fabric which I then transformed into clothing that was sold in upscale boutiques across the country. I also designed and sewed clothing for others, including wedding and bridesmaid dresses. My husband and I purchased and restored a circa-1870’s building in downtown Madisonville, Kentucky in 2003 and it became Black Dog Fiber Studio in 2010. The studio got its name from our sweet black lab, Magic, who used to come to the studio with me. Alas, he is getting up there in age and prefers to stay home now. Currently I spin, weave, knit, felt, and dye my own yarns and fabrics which I make into wearable art. I’ve always derived great joy from creating a design in my mind and then making the materials come alive. Seeing others enjoy my work is icing on the cake. While Black Dog Fiber Studio is not a retail shop with set hours, I do open the studio for “fiber fellowship” most Tuesday evenings, as well as for occasional local art shows in conjunction with the Hopkins County Art League. I teach knitting, dyeing and felting workshops and create and publish knitting, crochet and sewing patterns. Many of my patterns are featured in the online and print catalogs of Knit Picks (, as well as through my Etsy shop ( I spend way too much time on the social network for all things fiber ( - you can find me as “Mariaknittedit.”
