The Windchill Cardigan from Melissa LaBarre

Share Button

We’ve been so thrilled with your response to our first specialty yarn and dedicated patterns. We thought it was time to share another pattern highlight with you. Melissa LaBarre designed the Windchill Cardigan for us and it’s just stunning!

About her relationship with WEBS:

I’m so happy to be one of the designers for Webs’ 40th anniversary. Webs has been a big part of my life for more than a decade.
I discovered Webs when I started knitting again, just over 10 years ago. What a place to discover when you’re a new knitter. I think I started by buying 2 of everything and making a bunch of fancy scarves.
Years later, knitting had become a big part of my life. I started designing and picked up a part-time job at Webs. During my 2 years there, I co-wrote 2 knitting books, New England Knits and Weekend Hats.
Now I’m a work-at-home designer and mother of a toddler girl, with another baby girl on the way. My designs had shifted from adult garments to accessories and baby designs in the last year, so it was fun to design my first adult sweater in a year for Webs’ anniversary.
You can check out more of Melissa’s patterns on our site, on her Ravelry page or follow her on Facebook!

    What a beautiful piece. I wish I had the courage to start a sweater. Maybe this will be the catalyst to get me to take the leap……

    Love the pattern. Will have to put in in my favorites on Ravelry. Have tons of stash but, just might have to go to the Webs site and find just the right yarn.

    Yes, this is exactly what I like, simple with some nice touches and useful, versatile. Also pretty!

    I agree simple and elegant! Not too bulky and still in a size yarn that would knit quite quickly.

    Great design, I would love an option with buttons.
