Blue Jay Circular Yoke Sweater

[Studio Members] The Blue Jay is a bird that can’t be missed—its vivid colour and loud squawk are unmistakable, and they come around designer Nicky Jensen’s Ontario home all winter long, brightening even the dullest days. Blue Jay is worked from the top down, seamless, in the round with thoughtful shaping to flatter diverse bodies. A surprise bit of colourwork detail is added to the back forearm of one sleeve using duplicate stitch.

Bespoke Cardigan Knitting Pattern

For the first time, Digits & Threads is making a pattern available to all! It is included with Studio Membership, priced at 33% off for Armchair members, and at full price for free members and non-members.

Bespoke is a deliberately and thoughtfully gender- and size-inclusive design; the pattern includes instructions for making it with narrow or broad shoulders, and regular or tall length.

With an allover simple cabled pattern and diamond motif that runs down the centre back and sleeves, Bespoke is a buttoned cardigan featuring deep, integrated pockets; a choice of button placement on the right or left front; and a selection of techniques you’ll be happy to have in your knitter’s toolkit. Set-in sleeves and English-tailored shoulders provide a polished fit. The shawl collar is worked with short rows and changing needle sizes so the collar lays neatly around the back neck.

Rathtrevor Socks Knitting Pattern

When designer (and D&T editorial director) Kate Atherley learned of a yarn maker on Vancouver Island who is on a mission to develop a fully Canadian, non-superwash, non-synthetic sock yarn, she immediately reached out. One result of that outreach is a pair of socks Kate designed using this extraordinary yarn. Featuring ribbing and cables, with opportunities for the knitter to make key design choices, the Rathtrevor Socks are made in the wool/mohair blend Barn Swallow sock yarn by The Small Bird Workshop.
