It’s crazy exciting and totally petrifying all at once, but here is my first adult sized pattern! The Curve is my first garment pattern (written before the Sunny Lou Dress) and it was exactly that – one giant learning curve.  I’m so grateful for how the knitting community is just like one big family and many helped me to get this pattern into your hands. Although I’m a frantic mess some (ok, a lot) of the time, certain things I am a total perfectionist about, and definitely so when it comes to my knitting. Bless my testers and my awesome tech editor who dealt with all my nit picking, and certainly gave it me back. I’m so happy to finally have this pattern complete!

And again, my photographer, Krista, she is just the best, need I say more….?!

The Curve is my ultimate cardigan. It celebrates everything I love about drapey open fronts, long sleeves with cushy hems, a relaxed but not too oversized fit, and in worsted weight – a quick and satisfying knit! The broken rib curve adds an element of interest when worn fastened, and accentuates the rustic look of the yarn.
