A few years ago, I discovered Susie Meyer’s Contiguous Method for top-down, set-in sleeve, sweater construction. Although I love playing around with different ways to make sweaters, this method remains my go-to. It combines the convenience of raglan, while offering a more tailored sleeve, all without short rows.
Come discover the magic of the Method! Emily Devlin will be teaching a class on Thereafter, a lovely pattern that forms the perfect introduction to Contiguous sweaters. Thereafter – A Contiguous Cardigan begins Wednesday, October 14th, from 5:30-7:30. This cardigan beautifully marries a practical, open front style with a graceful lace detail at the back, and sweet border details at hem and cuffs.
The designer, Alicia Plummer, describes it as a way to luxuriate with a beloved yarn, when all your chores are done, like a warm bath. I can easily imagine a hand dyed sport weight, like Blue Moon Fiber Arts Woobu, slipping over the needles as shoulders and sleeves increase. In a crunchy, sweatery wool, like Imperial Stock Ranch’s Tracie Too, it makes a lasting, versatile classic for crisp mornings and star-filled nights. Sign up, and get ready to start on your new favorite sweater!
