Meet us at the River’s Edge

  • A pink cabled sweater.

Visit Sew Happy Jane this weekend for a discount on a dyed-to-order selection of DK yarns perfect for knitting the River’s Edge pattern collection by Hanks and Needles.

After a year of dreaming and scheming, Heather Best of Sew Happy Jane and Makenzie Alvarez of Hanks and Needles are thrilled to finally share the results of a special collaboration.

Inspired by the quiet banks of a winding river, the River’s Edge Cardigan and Hat patterns echo the flowing life and serene landscape of a river bank. Makenzie’s goal was to balance simplicity and flow to showcase a tonal hand-dyed yarn with this seamless design. The cardigan begins at the collar and winds its way down the back with a flowing cable panel that is easy to work via chart or written instructions. Using an innovative method you’ll work the collar and the body all at the same time and the finished garment will be a classic you’ll reach for over and over.

Not quite ready to commit to a cardigan? The single skein River’s Edge Hat will give you the perfect opportunity to play with cables again or try your hand at them for the first time.

Heather has put together a thoughtful palette of colorways perfect for showcasing the River’s Edge hat and cardigan. The dyed-to-order listing will feature a selection of options at a discounted price on a choice of three DK base yarns. Choose from Delightful DK, Delightful Tweed DK, and the new Dreamy MCN DK. Shown in colorway Electric Raspberry.

The pattern is available on Ravelry, and LoveCrafts for 25% off through the weekend.
