Hi there! I'm the assistant editor for Knitscene. I moved west from the east coast in May 2013 and have happily adjusted to Colorado's lack of humidity.

  1. It is in “Knitscene Summer” magazine.  You can buy the single issue or subscribe – click on the picture again and the order form should come up.  Some sewing/craft stores carry it too, if you want to get it there.  Cost might be different.

     


  2. This is an awesome piece that every woman would want in their closet to wear every wear.  If we could do another summer sweater online this would be it.  I have the pattern and it looks very nice and intriguing, I am definitely going to try and make this.

    Love it

  3. Just orderd yarn to make this – I probably wil wear it year- round – as made into the fall, over a long sleeve tee or turtleneck when it gets cold.
