Chic Knits PNW #1
                                                        …Chugach National Forest near Eyak Lake, Alaska

Now that it’s officially FALL there’s nothing better than snuggling into a cushy, friendly cardi and going for a hike!

Looks like a lot of you feel the same – thanks for the great feedback on this design! I have two personal ones that I made (am having my morning coffee wearing one, in fact, while I write this).

I sent out a bonus update last week with a Pocket Mod so if you like, you can make a plain stockinette version with some hand warming action for when you run out
to walk the dog…

Pacific Northwest Number One – or PNW #1 – has a gauge of 4 sts / 1″
so it knits up fast…

Here’s some Yarn Subs – maybe a stash dive is in your future?

Bartlett Yarns 2-ply
Briggs & Little Heritage
Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted
Cascade Eco Wool & Eco +

Valley Yarns Berkshire
––– OR –––
be on the lookout at your favorite Fiber Fest for some home-grown yarnie goodness (OFFF? Rhinebeck?)
… lots of small producer yarns are perfect for this design …

Pacific Northwest Number One

Chic Knits PNW #1
This summer I was up in Cordova, Alaska, teaching at a wonderful
retreat at the NetLoft.

I brought a few(!) sweaters with me – knowing it would be chilly at times, even in June – it’s right at the foot of the glacial rain forest. And what were
the ones I wore the most?

My PNW #1 cardigans!

At the end of the week, my friends and I hiked out near Eyak Lake and took some special shots of the oatmeal color one – I wish I could take you there! It was almost overwhelmingly beautiful – I was afraid none of my pictures would be in focus I was so in awe of the rocks and sweet waterfalls…

The inspiring Coastal knitting tradition is reflected in the shape of this cardigan and its raised stitch motif on front and back – or it can be made plain for a
really bread & butter wearable staple…

Pacific Northwest Number One – or PNW #1 – is knit with heavy worsted wool with a shaped shawl collar is really just comfy cozy…

And stylish! I wore them with all sorts of outfits: jeans & tees; skirts and blouses and even this one over a navy knit lace dress for a special Friday night.
