make. wear. love. 2018 fall sweater retreat collection

$25.00

Each year for my fall sweater retreat, I design a small collection of sweaters in our vendors' yarn. Often, I group the garments around a theme – and this year the theme is nurturing. This collection includes one copy each of the three retreat patterns for 2018 – the Bayview Cowl, the Dockside Cardigan, and the Rocky Crest Pullover.

You'll receive a PDF of Rocky Crest for an immediate download; Bayview and Dockside are both CustomFit patterns, so you'll receive a credit for one custom pattern for each design.

Dockside Cardigan

The Dockside Cardigan is part of my retreat collection for the 2018 make. wear. love. fall sweater retreat. Each retreat, I make a mini-collection of sweaters in yarns from our vendors, loosely focused around a theme. This year, the theme was "nurturing";: I wanted to create winter-worthy sweaters that would envelop us in warmth and love.

I worked up the Dockside Cardigan in our vendor The Fibre Company's soft, tweedy Arranmore yarn - a delightful blend of wool, cashmere, and silk available in tons of sophisticated colors. I knew that with such a luscious, tweedy yarn I'd need a fairly simple design. So I kept things classic with a collared cardigan that features a diagonally-diminishing ribbing pattern on the fronts and sleeves.

Dockside can be made in any of CustomFit's silhouettes, and would look great in the range of Fibre Company yarns. It's shown here on Christy in a women's relaxed fit.

Rocky Crest Pullover

I designed Rocky Crest for my 2018 make. wear. love. fall sweater retreat collection. Each retreat, I make a mini-collection of sweaters in yarns from our vendors, loosely focused around a theme. This year, the theme was 'nurturing': I wanted to create winter-worthy sweaters that would envelop us in warmth and love.

Rocky Crest is worked in The Uncommon Thread's Everyday Sweater, from our vendor Yarn Culture. Everyday Sweater is a gorgeous, soft, and super hard-wearing blend of merino and nylon; I used the color "Confetti", a light gray with fun speckles. A lace pattern on the body of this roomy, tunic-length, drop-shoulder sweater breaks up the speckles, and solid sleeves keep the pattern from being too overwhelming. I've used an unusual ribbing to trim the edges and the soft, cuddly turtleneck.

The Rocky Crest Pullover is a standard-gauge, standard-size knitting pattern and available here via PDF download.

Bayview Cowl

The Bayview Cowl is part of my retreat collection for the 2018 make. wear. love. fall sweater retreat. Each retreat, I make a mini-collection of sweaters in yarns from our vendors, loosely focused around a theme. This year, the theme was 'nurturing': I wanted to create winter-worthy sweaters that would envelop us in warmth and love.

Bayview is worked in our vendor Indigodragonfly's Wingenhooven DK - a deliciously drapey blend of wool, yak, and mulberry silk. This is yarn that deserves to be puddled around your neck in a soft hug - so I knew it wanted to be worked up into a cowl. I paired the cowl with an a-line shape and tunic length to balance it out; a perfect match for my favorite fall skinny jeans and boots.

Bayview can be made in any of CustomFit's silhouettes and lengths, though - so you can make your own any way you like it.
