Amirisu Wisteria

The Spring 2016 issue of the Amirisu Magazine launched with a cardigan knit in Berroco’s Corsica on the cover! The collection includes 8 designs for light weight spring and summer knitting, as well as articles that range from a city guide with profiles of some of the amazing artisans working in Nashville to new books and tools of note. We are so thrilled to be included in this beautiful collection featuring many of our favorite designers.

This cotton cardigan is perfect for spring weather. Although the garment is knit in lace pattern, the thicker cotton yarn makes it a casual wear. The lace pattern is simple enough to remember after a few repeats, and the rest is easy. It is a lovely piece for either relaxing at home and more formal occasions.

One thought on “Amirisu Wisteria

  1. “Cool design” this would be a lovely summer sweater to have with you for the emergencies that always seem to crop up—summer evenings, movie theaters, grocery stores (brrrrr!)
    The yarn is soft and luxurious. This sweater should move to the top of your
    “next to knit” list!
