Riverbank Grape Launch

The Riverbank Grape pullover launches to everyone today!

This pattern was inspired by riverbank grapes, also called frost grapes, which are native to New Brunswick, Canada! These grapes grow in thick twining tendrils near water sources and produce an intense purple-coloured grape. This sweater’s design takes inspiration from these vines, with thick cables growing up the sleeves. They’re a simple cable to work while adding great interest and detail to the sweater.

The pattern has a narrow scoop neck, which starts at the armhole shaping. It has rope cables up the sleeves, which stand out against the relatively simple stockinette body of the sweater. The body of the sweater allows for a lot of flexibility in choosing your preferred silhouette – I’ve knit an hourglass silhouette here.

I hope you all have some comfort knitting. I’m looking forward to lots of new launches with CustomFit in 2023, and hope you are too.
