One of the pieces in my designer collection for the Fall 2011 issue of Knitscene magazine, the Cornsilk Pullover is a trim, tailored pullover with a delicate shawl collar. Vertical darts are used for waist shaping and give a flattering, easily-customized fit. Wide garter stitch bands trim the sleeves and hem of the sweater, enhanced by the soft halo of angora in the yarn. Cornsilk’s clean lines and classic styling will make this a wardrobe staple for years to come.

It and my other patterns from the designer collection are available in the Fall 2011 issue of Knitscene.
