Hello readers!
I wanted to share my brand new knitwear designs with all of you! There are 2, count em', TWO new patterns by yours truly, available for purchase through my Ravelry store!

Introducing the Seacliff Cardigan!

Seacliff Cardigan by Shanna Felice at Lambstrings Yarn


This cardigan gains it’s inspiration from the towering cliffs of the northern coastlines. Rocky and cold, there you will find the Kittiwake, nesting in the highest nooks and crannies of the cliff side.
These small birds begin their lives in the danger and
uncertainty of the steep arctic rock and forge ahead to the
seas.
The texture and cable detail mimic the cliffs in which they dwell. In addition to aesthetics, the texture also acts as a thermal fabric to keep you nice and warm when you decide to go visit the Kittiwake on your next trip to the arctic!
It is sure to be your new favorite cozy cardigan.
Features
Seacliff is a grandpa style cardigan knit flat, seamlessly from top down with set in pockets.
It is constructed using the contiguous set in sleeve method which is entirely written out. Sleeves are picked up and worked in the round from the underarm.
Cable and textured stitches are both charted and written for your choice to follow.
Short rows are used for collar shaping.
Links to helpful video tutorials are also provided!
