Valley Yarns WEBS DIR11 Red Letter Day by Fiona Ellis
The Red Letter Day is our eleventh and final pattern by Fiona Ellis in our 2015 Valley Yarns Designer in Residence series! This women’s cardigan knit in Northampton goes to great lengths for style. The lower section ribbed pattern slowly morphs into a panel of cables that include the magical-looking closed loops reminiscent of Celtic knot patterning. The panel used on the back and sleeves are divided in half to flank the center front opening and then move effortlessly around the V-neck shaping. Valley Yarns Northampton is the softest 100% wool; it is beautiful and economical, too. The cable pattern is charted and written out.
