I won some gorgeous Indigodragonfly yarn when Kim hosted a giveaway to mark her anniversary. Ever since I held that yarn in my hands, I knew I will have to make my own design out of it. I was a budding designer then and neither had the skills nor the experience to design, so this yarn was treasured for future use. The right time came a few months back and Tanvi was born.
Tanvi was actually planned to be released as part of Knitcircus Summer 2012 issue, but as my luck would have it, the magazine had to close down. So, I decided to self-publish Tanvi.
Ravelry Pattern: Tanvi by Anjali M.
Yarn Suggested: Indigodragonfly Merino Sock
Needle Size: US #2.5 3 mm
Tanvi is a circular yoke, seamless cardigan and is the perfect solution to keep off the spring’s morning chill. True to its name, the cardigan is delicate with eyelets on the yoke and lacy diamonds on the body. It is a great way of showcasing the single skein of hand-dyed sock yarn lying around in the stash.
The cardigan is knit flat from the neck down with circular yoke. After the desired yoke depth is reached, sleeve stitches are put on holders and the body is worked. It comes in sizes 6 months to size 10. This is a great way of using up your ever growing sock yarn stash.
Keep tuned as I have planned a giveaway which is coming soon.
That stinks that Knitcircus closed just when you pattern was to be published! What a lovely cardigan. With that brilliant pattern, you should no problems selling it.
Awww… that is so sweet of you to say that. It is indeed unfortunate, but Jaala tried her best to avoid this drastic step. Knitcircus team was great to work with and respected designers, so it is our loss.
Now I know why I’ve missed all of your fantastic knits, your blog was somehow missing on my blog reader! Congratulations on getting Tanvi published!! It’s a really cute sweater:)
Weeeee, what a quick and easy sounitol.
I bought your pattern a few days back through Ravelry. The only thing us that I want to give the sleeve a finish like the one on the picture (the one white and hung ) how do I knit that edge? Thank you !
Thanks for buying the pattern. The white cardigan has picot bind off, which is not included in the pattern instructions. You can find the instructions here: http://www.creativeknittingmagazine.com/newsletters.php?mode=issue&issue_id=552
Hope this helps.
Very quick response !!
