It is so good to be back at face to face markets and shows.
The May Woodstock Artisans Market and The Coal Loaders Artisan Market were a brilliant start to winter with fantastic sales of both garments and knitting kits. These two markets are quarterly events and present an all Australian-made line up of products.
My new website is slowly getting populated, click on the Fan & Cable images below to see more on the new website.

Fan & Cable Cardigan

The Fan pattern is a favourite of mine and yours too - it's just such a classic. The styling is classic with a twist, you can see below right and centre the hemline splits each side edged with a cable; these come together to create the Crab Claw Cable. 
The Blue Jacket is slightly different to standard, the neck band is sligthly deeper, so it turns back quite nicely. This garment arrived into the studio the day before the photoshoot and I could see the sleeve wouldn't be long enough for Meg, so I added a cuff and a button.

These are two new colours Fleck Mustard/Fleck Denim

The Fan and Cable Swagger

What is the difference between the Fan & Cable Swingcoat style left and the Fan & Cable Swagger below?
The swingcoat is full from the shoulder, whilst the centre shot below shows the high waisted fit, creating a cardigan fit over the shoulders, with fullness in the skirt of the swagger.

The same shaping technique is applied to both styles; decreases are worked into the patterns of panels between the cables. The Fan pattern remains consistent, whilst the number of stitches between the Fan and the Cable decrease hem to shoulder.

The Fan & Cable Swagger has a shawl collar which is knitted as one with each front, so very little finishing once the pieces are knitted. There are five chest sizes: petite to XXL, round neck option and a longer length option too.
The Swingcoat and Swagger aren't yet loaded to the new site
