New Pattern:  Concordia

My most recent pattern design is knit with Concordea yarn, created by Carole of Foster Sheep Farm and spun at Battenkill Fiber Mill. Concordea is a gorgeous, sport weight yarn in two natural colors. Soft and incredibly springy, it is spun from a 50/50 blend of Carole’s Romney fiber and Falkland fiber.

The Concordia pattern includes instructions for a luxurious cabled neckline and an easy-to-knit ribbed option.  There are directions for three sizes, and the split front makes this capelet comfortable and effortless to wear.
