With a fresh batch of Jill Draper Makes Stuff Kingston in the shop, we are dreaming of spring sweaters. Cool mornings and evenings are the perfect time to throw on a light handknit sweater. We love this eye-catching design from designer Thea Colman. The Pendennis Club sweater checks all of our boxes for a transitional season knit. The multicolor design is colorful for spring, with a hint of a leafy colorwork motif. We love the effortless fit of this sweater and the conscious design details.
From the designer:
In terms of design, I love how the delicate geometry of an accent stripe plays off the elegant leaves of the larger motif across the body of the sweater here. The motifs are placed intentionally so the color shift lines up perfectly from body to sleeve. I’ve designed my sweater with a hip-length and a boxy fit, and I’ve added a split hem and visible raglan seams. I think the balance of the colors, the detail, and the shaping is quite flattering — but of course there are notes in the pattern to modify this to fit your body and wardrobe.
