Hi Everyone

This time of year the store is changing almost on a daily basis.  The arrival of new yarns means things get moved around and reposition, sample garments are coming in from our suppliers and the staff is delirious from the new patterns to knit and crochet both for themselves as well as for the store.  It can be a little frustrating at times because I can go to look for a yarn or sample garment that was one place yesterday and not there today.  That is truly how fast things can change.

I was in the store gathering some yarn yesterday when I stopped dead in my tracks.  This sample may have been in the store for a bit but it was new to me.  I *heart* it:


It’s the Austin Hoodie from Connie Chang Chinchio.  Our model was knit using 3 skeins of  Tosh Merino Light.  The sample is a size 32 and is shown in the color Jade.

Look at the lovely stitch detail on the front:


The woven slip stitched band is created using the yarn doubled – very nice detail.

Here’s the back:


The main body is worked in a larger than called for gauge which results in a lighter weight fabric.  It’s knit in one piece up to the armholes and features set in sleeves.  What’s even better is that the pattern offers six sizes from 32″-51 1/2″ bust circumference.

Hmm.  Maybe this should be on our short list for a KAL on Ready, Set, Knit?  What do you all think?
