Ravelers Rock

It’s time, once again, to showcase you fantastic knitters out there – our customers. Here are five sweaters designed by me and interpreted by Ravelers to fit their individual tastes and needs. 

KallieKYs Assemblage
KallieKY's Assemblage

KallieKY’s assemblage is knit in Inca Gold.  The pattern calls for Pure Merino dk , but as you can clearly see Inca Gold works very well. Here’s the link to our original photo. 

TrafficKnitters cabled coat
TrafficKnitter's cabled coat

This pattern is in the Fall 2007 edition of Vogue Knitting. Traffic Knitter whipped up the Pure Merino pieces very quickly and suffered angst about sewing it together perfectly.  She’s posted a great side view on her blog and described her sewing solution.

Gauge let her creative instincts free with her interpretation of Linear from NGV3. In her hands a more austere monochromatic Inca Gold cardigan is infused with steampunk prettiness.

cadburyskeepers chantal
cadburyskeeper's chantal

Cadburyskeeper expressed the wish that she had taken a better photo of her Chantal, but I love the boldness of  the red cardigan against the black and white curtain and the odd feeling that she is taking a photo of us as we gaze on.  Oh, and  yes, she’s used the yarns called for Ultra Alpaca and Ultra Alpaca Light (which come dyed to match).

I think that meegiemoo’s Alpine suits her perfectly.  Here’s the link to the  free pattern . Check out her blog to see  “The Cutest Shoes in the World”, completing the the look (scroll down). For more pictures of Alpine knit in Cuzcoclick here.

Thanks for all the great Knitting!

  1. I like the Assemblage – a nice wardrobe basic with panache!

    I love reading about your new designs, Norah, and have nominated your blog for the Kreativ Blogger Award. The specs are on my blog.

    Happy Knitting!

  2. hahaha, this is great! I heard Mo’s comment last week, and his apology this week (I’m also an avid Wait Wait fan). It looks like Mo’s going to get a fabulous sweater!

  3. Oh my Gawsh!! That is so hilarious. I love the fact that everyone was highly amused, and he was actually abashed. I love this story.

  4. I heard the comment on Sunday on the repeat (had to gasp at the Ravelry shoutout), so I went to Ravelry, and found the group. If I didn’t already love Berroco yarns (Inca Gold and I are almost engaged, and Seduce is, well, you get the picture), now I’m a total fan.

  5. Wow! What a difference “who is wearing the garment” makes! KallieKY’s assemblage, is gorgeous on her, where, I may not ever be tempted to knit it from the original picture in Norah Gaughan, Vol. 3. Sure wish your patterns were .pdf format!

  6. I am about to purchase yarn to knit the Berroco, Norah Gaughan collection. Vol.3. Pattern “Assemblage”. On Ravelry I noticed an errata link. The link is closed. Could you send me any errata needed in this pattern? Thanks, Janet
