Petite Facile

Liane is knitting up a Petite Facile for the store. It's so adorable, I thought you'd find it inspiring. It's also always nice to stumble across something great in your magazine back issues (it's from Interweave Knits Winter 2011, and if you are looking for a copy we presently have 5 for sale at Knit-O-Matic). 

The construction is really cool, it is made in one piece and then seamed up the side & arm, but it also has short row shaping in the upper part. I love that kind of elegant simplicity in a pattern - plus it's not so simple that it's boring, but not so hard that you have to pay attention every second. 

And above is Our Petite Facile, in progress. We're using 4.5mm needles and Cascade 220 Superwash Paints. The yarn is knitting up beautifully, it is comfortably soft and the colour isn't pooling, which is VERY impressive for a hand-paint variegated yarn. 

More to come once it's finished!

As always, you can find us at
