Sunne's Oxbow Cardigan + Workshop
One of our talented teachers, Sunne Meyer, has been knitting away making a sample for her upcoming Oxbow Cardigan Workshop. We had all seen the pattern and were waiting with bated breath to see the finished product. The weather might not quite be ready for this chunky beauty, but we sure are!
Sunne’s class kicks off this upcoming Monday, so she cast off her sample just in time! In her 5-part class, she will walk you through all the steps of making the Oxbow Cardigan in during five 1-2 hour sessions. By the beginning of November, you will be casting off this cozy hand knit dream. Great for first-time sweater knitters and experienced knitters alike Sunne will be there every step of the way to answer questions, offer tips and cheer you on. If you have always dreamed of knitting a sweater, but have been too intimidated to try on your own, this is a great place to start.
Pattern: Oxbow Cardigan by Andrea Mowry
Materials: Brooklyn Tweed Quarry in Hematite
We love the look of the simple textural knit pattern in the chunky and rustic Quarry yarn. We fall even deeper in love when we hear the stitch repeat is easy to memorize! There is nothing worse than having to check the pattern 1,000 times per row.
One of the wonderful things about this pattern is the number of size options available. You can knit this for your whole family with sizes ranging from 2 months to adult men’s sizing. In a quick knitting bulky weight yarn like Quarry, it is not even crazy to consider such an ambitious project.
Join Sunne this Monday, September 24th, to start knitting your own Oxbow Cardigan.

Shannon, when there’s a repeated pattern combined with increases and decreases I find it can help to place a marker at the beginning/end of the pattern repeat that is closest to where the shaping is happening. That way you can know where the pattern should be repeating, and can even work backwards if needed to determine what stitch goes where.
Any tips for staying in pattern during the neck shaping?
