Teaching Tuesday: Emelie Cardigan

Currently teaching: Emelie

Emelie No. 1

Today is the last of a 4-session workshop I’m teaching at the store. This has been the funnest workshop to date, partly because my students are awesome people, and partly because the Emelie cardigan is an awesome project! All of the workshop signups came from me wearing my version (above) around the store. My manager actually joked that I was going for the hard sell since I wear the cardigan so often, but the truth is that it goes with everything! I knit it in grey to fill a hole in my wardrobe, but the shape and lace panel make it super versatile. Dresses, pants, jeans, t-shirts, blouses… I have yet to find a combination it doesn’t compliment.

It’s so versatile, in fact, that I was happy to make a second one! Tonight it gets a collar and button bands, and then it just needs blocking and buttons. Can’t wait!
