At this time last winter, while we were hunkering down during a snowstorm, I happened upon this lovely lace stitch. I started swatching and the more I played with the yarns and needles, the more I envisioned flowers in bloom. I designed a sweater, and a hat, and finally a baby blanket and named the patterns Fleuris. Fleuris is a French word meaning "flowery." Knit Picks chose the patterns for their Independent Design Partnership and I've been slowly releasing the patterns as I finished them.
The Fleuris Cardigan is knit in Knit Picks' Comfy Sport in Lilac Mist. Comfy Sport is a cotton/acrylic sport weight blend, perfect for spring, summer, and fall wear. The sweater is knit seamlessly from the bottom up, and the button band is knit as you go. It's a great layering piece over T-shirts or dresses.
The Fleuris Hat is also knit in Comfy Sport in Marlin. The hat is one size, fitting most older girls, teens, and adults.
