When I saw the yarn named Silvija (50 g/150 m, 70 % wool, 30 % silk), I immediately knew I would like to make a shawl collar cardigan with a big lace pattern. The yarn is rather exotic to find but luckily it can be easily substituted with other yarns. The pattern comes in three sizes (S-M and L) and is easily customizable. It is a top down seamless cardigan: try on as you go. The pattern is free and can be found on Ravelry here.
This is my new pattern, Paekivi (Limestone) jacket. It is always a challenge to invent a name for your design. Sometimes I am guided by the characters of a stitch pattern and sometimes by colours. This colour reminded me of limestone that is very usual in Estonia.
I used Aade Lõng 8/3, Estonian yarn known also as Kauni. It is something between Sport and DK, 100 g/200 m. Anything that drapes nicely and gives the gauge would be fine. Test-knitters have used Ethical Twist by Stylecraft, Artesana Inca Cloud, Rozetti Yarns First Class. The pattern is for sizes S and M. If you would like to venture for L, we would like to get the numbers, so please let us know. It is a seamless top down construction, try on as you go; therefore, it is easily adjustable.
