Since previewing Madder - Anthology 2 / Simple Pleasures by Carrie Bostick Hoge back in January we have been anxiously waiting for it to arrive. This book is a stunner cover to cover and we’re so excited to offer it to you!
Madder Anthology II includes eleven sweater designs for women, two cowls, one shawl and a lovely beret, scarf and fingerless mitt ensemble. The sweaters have an impressive finished size range of 32″ to 51″ – 63″ with modern shapes that are flattering and easy to wear. The patterns use simple stockinette and garter stitches to create pieces with a beautiful balance of ease and sophistication.
We love them all, but allow me to introduce a few of our favorites!
The striped hood and inset pockets of the Madeline cardigan add a fun touch to this wardrobe staple. Sport weight yarn keeps it light and the perfect layer for a summer’s night stroll. Swans Island Organic Merino Ecowash Sport is the ideal yarn choice, choose a color combo today! Main color 8 – 14 skeins, 1 skein of a contrast color.
Don’t forget to pick up Carrie’s first collection Madder - Anthology I / Camilla, Sibella, Imogen, and Beatrice featuring four unique stitch patterns over several pieces.
