Designer Feature: Caragh by Laura Nelkin

Our dear friend Laura Nelkin just published a lovely sweater design, Caragh, featuring The Fibre Co. Arranmore Light.

From Laura:

“Caragh is a boxy sweater knit with my Novus construction, a high/low turned hem, cabled side panels, and an optional scrummy cabled cowl neck. The pattern includes notes for making your Caragh longer, and taking out the hi-low hem…. have fun with this construction, it isn’t hard to manipulate to fit you!”

Laura’s Novus construction is really unique, and has fast become her “signature” sweater design. You can read more about this construction and see more designs featuring this approach in her Novus Collection here.
