Acorn Trail


One of my most popular designs, Acorn Trail is written as a traditional pattern, with set-in sleeves, in 12 sizes. Lovely cables and a rustic tweed keep things properly outdoorsy and vertical waist shaping darts make it a snap to modify.

I worked the sample in Harrisville Highland – a workhorse of a yarn that’s hard-wearing and comes in a dazzling array of beautiful colors. I highly recommend it. Your pattern PDF will be available for download immediately after purchasing.

Acorn Trail is my go-to cardi for sweater weather. Cables, a gorgeous tweedy wool, a little bit of openwork to keep things from being too heavy – they all make Acorn Trail a great layering piece. (Or a knockout on its own.)

Acorn Trail is worked in pieces, from the bottom up, in Harrisville’s Highland yarn. Highland is a sturdy, wool-lover’s wool, with a truly stunning color palette, 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.


30 1⁄4 (32, 34 3⁄4, 36 1⁄2, 38 1⁄4, 40, 42 3⁄4, 46 1⁄4, 50 3⁄4, 54 1⁄4)”/77 (81.5, 88, 92.5, 97, 101.5, 108.5, 117.5, 128.5, 137.5) cm

Intended to be worn with 1-2” of positive ease through the bust (or upper torso).
