Hollywood Herringbone Sweater

Some of you may have found a sneak peek of Kate's new design for Knitscene Magazine featured in Knitting Daily at the beginning of the month in your inbox.  The full preview for the issue is now up on Knitscene.com, and the magazine is now available in your local yarn shops!

The Hollywood Herringbone uses The Fibre Company's Organik yarn in Loam (main color) and Arctic Tundra (contrast color).  It features a mosaic slip stitch front, with shaped stockinette back and sleeves and a cute buttoned shoulder detail with contrasting buttons.  Kate originally knit the prototype for this sweater a few years ago and publishing it was always on the top of the (admittedly, very long) list.  She was really excited at the opportunity to work with editor Lisa Shroyer to publish it with Interweave Press and Knitscene in her favorite yarn!
