First Light: 2013 Spring Collection

Introducing First Light: 2013 Spring Collection by Knit Picks

First Light: 2013 Spring Collection by Knit PicksFirst Light is a collection of 14 patterns from 12 designers, and it features seven yarns from Knit Picks.  There are 13 knit designs and 1 crochet design by me! — the Chrysanthemum crochet cardigan.

Knit Picks’ description reads:

Chrysanthemum is a full-length crochet cardigan that moves effortlessly with you as you move through your day. Wear it with a bright belt as an unexpected punch of color. Wear it as an extra layer as you head to an early morning yoga class. Wear it as a light coat throughout the transitional seasons.

Featuring long sleeves and an open front, this cardigan is crocheted from the shoulders down and joined at armholes to complete the remainder as one piece. Alternating groupings of double crochet and chain stitches create an elegant rippled pattern. Size increases are made in the dc sections, and the edges are finished with a reverse single crochet stitch border.

Chrysanthemum is available as an individual pattern or in the printed First Light book.  The First Light book also comes with a free PDF version!
