New Pattern: Lucania

Lucania, in Zen Yarn Garden colourway Poodle Skirt
I'm debuting a new pattern today!
Totes keen on this one. So much so that I had a super hard time giving the sample away.

A bit about it:

Lucania is the perfect cabled addition to your sleeveless sweater wardrobe. Great for layering, this seamless knit features a bottom-up, in-the-round construction and simple textural complements to the diamond-shaped cable repeats. The neckline and sleeve caps are picked up after the body is complete.

Buy kit here at Zen Yarn Garden.
Buy pattern here on ravelry for $6.50 CAD.

Lucania in Zen Yarn Garden colourway Yellow Opal
This is the second time I've worked with Zen Yarn Garden, and there's reason for that. This is beautiful stuff. You all need to try it. It's everything good you can say about a yarn. Beautifully complex colours, including multi-colour semi-solids and tone-on-tone gorgeousness.

I'm very glad I get to keep my Yellow Opal version. I love it so.
PLUS, I get the good fortune of being able to weave my wee dirndl top into my everyday wardrobe.
Win!

This is SUCH a gorgeous piece. I'm in love with the stitch motif and the ribbing works so well around the waist. Fabulous design!
