Making Magazine / Marigold Cardi by Cecily Glowik MacDonald

Previews for Carrie Bostick Hoge‘s new magazine, Making, have been popping up on the internet in the last week (you can get the most detailed images via Carrie’s Instagram here), and it promises to be a bounty of visual beauty and crafting inspiration.

Not only are we delighted to be included amongst the list of sponsors, there are two Fibre Co. yarns featured in the first issue, Flora

The Marigold Cardi by Cecily Glowik MacDonald is out of Meadow at a lovely, drapey gauge of 23 stitches over 4″ (10 cm), the cardigan has a really interesting construction: it is worked in one piece from the bottom up, then the fronts and backs are worked separately, with the lovely right and left front collars worked back and forth to meet at the back neck. Once the shoulders are seamed, stitches are picked up for the sleeves, and the cap is shaped using short rows. The sleeves are then worked in the round to the cuff.

I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek into the entire issue, and was overwhelmed with the possibilities.
