The Architect

I once saw a house in a photograph, a wooden house which angles made my heart beat faster. I don't know where the house is located, nor can I find the site where I saw it. But if I come across it again, I'll know it's partly mine.

I didn't only see a house, though. I saw possibilities for new angles in a knitted sweater. The result was The Architect, made as a tribute to the unknown architect of a house somewhere out there. A baby cardigan and a hat, constructed somewhat similarly to the Angle cardigan, yet differently. I would guess that those of you who enjoyed knitting Angle, will enjoy this one just as much.

The cardigan is knit in one piece, with grafted shoulder seams. The grafting is written specifically for grafting garter stitch, and it is all described in detail, so there is no need to worry. I love those magic, invisible seams, and I suspect you will too, after trying them. The hat is worked from the bottom up, and the crown is seamed to maintain the lovely angles all the way to the top.

The pattern includes directions for sizes 3 (6, 12, 24) months and can be had both at Ravelry and in my store - and of course as a kit with all the yarn needed for those who'd like that. Enjoy!
