August may feel a little early to start thinking about warm sweaters but it is the perfect time, especially as now is the time in the year when everyone starts to cast on their sweaters for Rheinbeck. A little tradition that every year, attendees of the famous yarn show in New York State wear their hand-knitted sweaters to the show.
Mason-Dixon said “With the Hadley, Véronik Avery has hit the sweet spot. Hadley (the name inspired by the first Mrs. Hemingway, who had sporty chic for days) has a roomy but shaped silhouette, for flattering ease, and a modern, simple colorwork pattern that recalls European colorwork and Native American trade blankets at the same time.” Swoon!
Knitted in our Winterburn Aran you can get the pattern from Mason-Dixon Knitting as either a printed book here or a digital book here. This handy chart will help you work out the yardage for your size.
