Happy Friday, dear friends! Today I am excited to share with you the latest pattern for my beloved Moeke Yarns. I would love to thank each of you for an amazing support here and on Instagram, thank you for all your sweet comments and reposts, you’ve definitely made my week!
The idea for these photos came to me while I was still working on the sweater – I’ve noticed how much it changed its look depending on the light! If in the Preview post you can see how the yarn basically absorbs the sunset light, turning into warm honey-like shade. And today I would love to demonstrate how it completely changes under desert dawn’s light, taking on cool neutral shades. Isn’t it amazing?! Such an alive fiber!
Heritage is a top-down sweater with the yoke shaped as the compound raglan, which creates a natural line running along the shoulder. I love this construction – it always creates such a great shape, something between the classic raglan and set-in sleeve! For your convenience the yoke shaping is written out individually for each size in a concise manner that is easy to follow, in my opinion.
The main eye catching detail is a subtle texture contrast created by combining basic stitches – stockinette, slip stitches, 1×1 ribbing and basic travelling cable. This mix results in a simple casual knit with an interesting twist to keep you interested.
Heritage is a part of Moeke 2017 knitwear collection that will be released this Fall. And my mission in this collection is to create basic city pieces that can become a wardrobe’s staple. I hope Heritage with its clean geometric lines will become your very wearable sweater 🙂
To me Heritage sweater looks “architectural” in some way with its simple shape, construction and very basic finishing. I used my favorite neckline trim + applied I-cord for the neckline; i-cord bind-off for the hem and left the sleeve edges raw, allowing the natural curl of stockinette stitch.
It’s been a challenge and a pleasure to write this pattern and I hope to see it on your needles this spring – Heritage is light as a feather and would be perfect for cool summer nights.
