Designed and cut with the 40’s in mind – and a good excuse to use some of my favorite Aran patterns albeit in a nontraditional design. The Blackberry Stitch, Gordian Knot and Hollow Oak patterns are paired with side panels of Seed Stitch. The cuffs are worked in a fabulous Blackberry & Rib pattern and the sleeve tops are detailed with a slightly gathered cap.
Phoebe is knit on #6 needles, and as for all Aran pattern stitches, it is best knit in smooth, worsted-spun yarns, which yield the optimum stitch definition. Phoebe is fun to knit for experienced knitters.
