Sugarleaf

By http://maryheatherbrowne.com/">Mary Heather Cogar

Dreaming up my Rhinebeck sweater has become one of my favourite fall rituals each year, and I always want to wear a warm and sturdy cardigan at the festival.

  • CONSTRUCTION

    The New Mexico Organic and Local Color by Green Mountain Spinnery, which are dyed and un-dyed versions of the same cosy woolen-spun base yarn, ended up providing the perfect outer layer for a chilly weekend outside. Sugarleaf is a versatile sweater with a modern, fitted silhouette that works as well in my “real life” as it does on a special wool festival trip. As I was working on Sugarleaf in preparation for my trip, it was such a pleasure to think of the yarn’s origins: the sheep the wool comes from are raised just a few hours away from my home in New Mexico.

    Sugarleaf’s body is worked back and forth in one piece, from the top’s face-framing circular yoke colourwork section down. Sleeves are picked up after the body is worked and knit seamlessly from underarms to the cuff. The cuffs and hem are trimmed with a garter rib, and a simple I-cord bind-off along the fronts and neck of the cardigan makes a tidy edging. Melissa Jean Design toggle buttons made from rich, smooth rosewood strike a lovely balance between rustic and sophisticated.
