New store sample: Hamlin Peak May 11, 2015 – Posted in: Project Ideas, Store Samples
Hamlin Peak by Pam Allen is a perfectly casual summer cardigan. This easy top-down sweater has clean lines and strategic shaping for a flattering fit. Although this pattern originally calls for Quince and Co. Kestrel, because we’re already working up a store sample in that yarn (blog post coming soon), we opted for Rowan Pure Linen for this instead. We think it works beautifully at this looser gauge giving the sweater a gorgeous drape, subtle sheen, and a very summery feel. At 16 1/2 stitches per 4″, Hamlin Peak knits up quickly and the straightforward raglan-style yoke and simple eyelet increases make for a minimalist yet pretty silhouette. So many wins!
