I'm pretty lucky that Amy Christoffers loves O-Wool yarns. No matter how busy she gets (and she is BUSY right now!) she always makes time to design something beautiful for O-Wool. Whether it's for our line (Frieze, Porticus), for her own line Savory Knitting (Acer Cardigan), or for other publications like Interweave's knit.wear (Selvedge Cardigan), she makes our hearty, simple, high quality yarns sing. Her most recent creation in O-Wool continues her tradition of understated, wearable design that's a joy to knit.
Meet Etheline, Amy's design for O-Wool Balance in Sunstone. It is flattering, simple, and delightful. The subtle lace pattern, color and blend of cotton and merino make it a great sweater to knit up now and wear this fall. Buy the pattern through O-Wool or Ravelry and cast on today. O-Wool Balance is available for purchase here.
