New Pattern: Candied Orange
I am so excited to announce the release of the last pattern of 2019, the Candied Orange sweater!
The orange color combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. Bright and uplifting, it is associated with sunshine, joy, excitement, and warmth! And, of course, it's the color of my favorite
winter fruit, an orange. I love all of its shades and versions: fresh, dried, and candied!
The sweater is worked sideways in two pieces, front and back, which are seamed at the shoulders and sides as tail-free as possible. An extra pattern repeat is added to the back to create a higher back neck. The sleeve stitches are picked up around the arm openings and worked in the round top down with decreases evenly placed along each sleeve to create a gentle taper towards the cuff.
The pattern is written for 6 sizes and 2 lengths, cropped and regular, and includes yardage requirements for both options of all sizes.
The amount of ease is up to you: roomy for layering or extra comfort, or minimal ease for next-to-body wear. Look through the dimensions on the pattern page and choose the ease and length
that works best for you.
In the photo: cropped version in size C worn on 36¼″ (92 cm) bust with 10″ (25 cm) of positive ease.
The wonderful orange yarn I used for this design is Malabrigo Rios in shade Sunset.
The pattern is available on Ravelry for 25% off the regular price until the end of 2019 with the code HAPPY. Happy crocheting!
