Free pattern Friday: Long Jacket October 30, 2015 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays, Online store


It goes without saying that Lisa and I love every single new yarn that we bring in to the store. That said, every season, there are one or two that fall firmly into our “favourites” category.  This Fall one of those yarns is Nova from Lang – a superlight, chainette yarn, consisting of fine merino and baby camel. The camel hair lends the yarn a wonderful softness, beautiful volume, and gorgeous mélange colours. Lisa and I saw several garments knit with Nova at the TNNA trade show in June (including the one above) and instantly added it to our “must-haves” list. Despite it’s soft and airy nature, this unassuming little yarn creates a wonderfully substantial fabric with impressive structure, the kind you know will look great for years to come.

Lang has just added the cardigan above to Ravelry as a free pattern. In fact, 224-016 Long Jacket comes as part of a free e-book containing 4 patterns for Nova. Bonus!  We saw this cardigan knit in both the striped version shown above and in a solid charcoal at TNNA. They were equally gorgeous. 🙂

Shop Lang Nova in our online store.
