Kerrera Hoodie

Well folks I'm about to make my trip across the Atlantic to meet my new niece........but I'll leave you with the newest Shetland Trader design:

Kerrera Hoodie (Rav link)

I re-knit this in Fiber Company Organik, which I'm very happy with. It has a little alpaca and silk to add to it's lusciousness!

Here are some more details:

This comfy hooded cardigan is worked bottom up in one piece and features a deep, ridged pattern at the hem, cuffs and bands. The pockets, hood and upper body are worked in reverse stockinette to add a small amount of texture. Short rows are used to shape the sleeve caps, pockets and hood. Kerrara is the name of a small island off the West Coast of Scotland.

I saw you wearing this sweater walking up to Rhinebeck this year and I loved it!! You gave me your card, and I promptly went home and ordered your Aestlight shawl pattern (almost done!) and now can't wait to start on this sweater. Your designs are beautiful!
