I’m impatiently waiting for book proofs to arrive tomorrow but in the meantime Julie has been working on the pdf version and she gave me one of the patterns as a single file even though she’s not done with the whole thing.

And since this is way too exciting to keep to myself, I figured I’d share it. The Laika pattern just went out to everyone who has pre-ordered, but if you haven’t yet don’t worry you’ll now receive the pattern automatically when you place your order. The patterns will be available individually in the future but for now this is a thank you perk for those who ordered the book

How to assemble Wardie
How to assemble Wardie

The Wardie cardigan is worked in pieces from the bottom up.  When the front and back are complete they're joined at the shoulders and then the sleeves are worked from stitches picked up around the armhole. The shoulders are shaped at the back, with neat cabled decreases and the bound off edge of the front pieces wraps over the shoulder to join the decreased edge. This style of shaping is known as English tailoring and gives a beautiful fit and a neat finish that's often found on high end ready to wear knitwear.
