      Sarcactus Sweater

      Sarcactus is a gorgeous top-down circular yoke pullover with beautiful colorwork on the yoke, hem and cuffs. The colorwork pattern is inspired by the flora and textiles of north-western Argentina, a region dear to the designer, and combines a central cactus motif with geometric details. Short-rows at the back of the neck as well as length options for the body and sleeves ensure a great fit. The neckline, cuffs and hem are worked in the contrasting color, which creates a beautiful transition to and from the colorwork sections.

      Frostbeam Shawl

      Frostbeam is a combination of a lot of wonderful things: Sheepy yarn meets lace, cool teal meets heathery grey, fun-to-knit construction meets FO that you don’t want to take off, ever. The parallelogram shawl is worked from tip to tip, with the ribbed contrasting color border knitted at the same time as the lace for the main body - no picking up of stitches here! Frostbeam is reversible, meaning the lace looks good from either side, which is a huge bonus for any shawl in our books!
