A little sooner than I expected,

but I am posting the first of a two-part pattern.

First part, the pullover…

and my younger niece who is now Sweet Sixteen!

Driving off from the back lot of the roastery!

A stellar time with my niece and her mom at the Roastery on Sunday, with a quick photo shoot.  I am needing a little extra time to get the cardigan ready , so that will be part two, very soon. But for now, please go check out the new Hillwalker pattern live on Ravelry

  1. Good morning, from the hills in the mid of Germany, totally surprised by a new sweater pattern, matching so well the landscape here ( visiting my nephew, who is ranger here now)
    …… but Nina looks gorgeous! I love her new haircut!
    The sweater is so simple, basic and unisex! congratulations Jen! I guess, your nieces will love them…… nosy about the forthcoming cardigan… see you on the other side, at ravelry!

    • Thank you Petra! I am so glad you are joining in the promotion, and so glad that maybe your Ranger Nephew might be able to wear a sweater knit by you and modeled by my niece! Oh, the cardigan will be called ‘ “After-thought” Cardigan’ for it is basically edited from the pullover, crazy work I went through making it for knitting in-the-round AND flat. Its almost finished, I just need to rework the button band (too big! )
      ((ps. Oh I think I hear construction workers coming up the road, I’m so excited!!!)) ~xx

  2. Such wonderful sweater and the most beautiful model ever. This design must be knitted for my granddaughter Matilda after I have finished knitting her mother’s. I love the seemingly simple design with those smart details typical of you, Jen!!❤️

    • Oh Yvonne, thank you so much for your cheerful encouragement! Please go see the group, I’m having a quick give-away, and would love it if you could join in! I plan on doing a bunch of these sweaters, they are so fun!

    • Sorcha, yes, she loved it, and she’s going to do great modeling new designs. I am really looking forward to future photo shoots & mochas at the Roastery with her! xx

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
