Congratulations to our winner Alicia! Thank you to everyone for entering to win—be sure to visit the Berroco Blog frequently, as we’ll have more giveaways in the future! Tomorrow is the day! The official launch of the new book Weekend Wraps by designers Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Melissa LaBarre—we love Cecily and Melissa’s work. They were both featured in Portfolio Volume 2 and their other titles, New England Knits and Weekend Hats, have prominent placement here in the Berroco design office’s reference library.
A few weeks ago I shared my contribution, the North Star Cardigan from Weekend Wraps. Knit in the incredibly cozy Berroco North Star, the body of this cardigan is a rectangle worked from right front to left front without shaping. A second rectangle is then picked up along one side and worked perpendicular to the first—this creates both the lower body and a sleeve opening. The sleeves are worked down in the round. No seams to sew! I love this easy sort-of-a-shawl-sort-of-a-cardigan shape and I especially love it in this soft squishy yarn, and I think you will too! I’m excited to announce we have a copy of Weekend Wraps to giveaway and the yarn to knit your own
