Knitty Deep Fall 2011: The Candles by Ann Weaver

Did you see? The new Knitty is up! And we're delighted that our yarn, Canopy Worsted, is featured in a really stunning steeked jacket, The Candles, by Ann Weaver {rav link} {web link}.

A prequel to her next collection of patterns, White Whale Vol. 1 {you can read more about it here}, The Candles features a long silhouette, stranded colorwork to create visual appeal and slight waist shaping, a seamless yoke, and a wide garter button band. Knit in the round and then steeked, this sweater {a jacket, really} is deceptively simple to knit once you get going, and the end result is sure to be a showstopper.

And in true Knitty form, the pattern is free, so go download a copy, grab yourself some Canopy Worsted at your favorite LYS and get knitting!
