Free pattern Friday: 164-3 Falling Leaves

falling_leaves1

Although it’s not a very summery pattern this gorgeous blanket-style sweater just popped up on Ravelry and I thought it worth sharing! Falling Leaves by Drops Design is one of those simple profiles worked in a square, this one from the top down. Armholes are created as you go, sleeves are knit separately, and then sewn in at the end.  Worked with one strand each of Drops Alpaca and Drops Kid-Silk held together on a 5 mm needle. The result is a very pretty and cozy asymmetrical cardigan great for easy winter layering.  Use a pin or shawl stick to cross over the fronts and hold it closed. Or use these great removeable leather closures from Jul Designs.

Pattern designed for size S through XXXL

We have lots of Drops Alpaca in stock and, although we don’t carry Drops Kid-Silk, Rowan Kidsilk Haze is a perfect substitute.
