Good afternoon and welcome to installment two of our Creative Knitting Autumn Highlight Reel!
This time around I’ll be talking about the cover image and subsequent project, Briarcliff.
I can honestly not say enough about this piece and it’s modern casual elegance! I imagine this to be a great go-to piece for those weekend mornings in late September. It’s stylish waterfall drape in front is universally flattering while bold stripes in mixed directions give a modern tone to the cardigan.
Made in Berroco Vintage DK, this garment has an easy wear-ability that feels just as good as it looks!
Are you as in love with Briarcliff as I am? Then you’ll need some size 6 straight needles along with size 6 32″ circular needles and some stitch markers to get started!
This pattern uses a variety of techniques such as 2×2 rib, stripe colorwork, and make 1 left (and right) so it’s a great project for an intermediate knitter to work on their skills and build upon their technique arsenal!
Have I tempted you into knitting this with me? I hope so! I would love to hear what you think about this project in the comments below!
To get this pattern and more, go here to download (and subscribe!) the issue or visit your local newsstand!
Visit me next Friday when I talk about our eye-opening and inspiring piece by editor Kara Gott Warner, Cast On to Cast Off Chemo, in the next installment of our Highlight Reel!
