A New Favorite: The Veronika Cardigan

When we first laid eyes on the Veronika Cardigan from designer Shannon Cook, we instantly knew that we had to make a sample for the shop! With a cozy, oversized shawl collar and all-over textured stitch body, we thought it effortless and stylish -- one of those pieces you could throw on over anything, a cardigan to reach for again and again. Knit in one piece, the unique construction makes it a fun knit! We've knit it in YOTH Daughter, a soft woolen spun yarn created with 100% domestic Rambouillet and Merino wool, milled and spun in Virginia.

We will have kits available on Tuesday, Oct. 3 -- each made with one of four colors of YOTH's Daughter; the kit includes the printed pattern, along with a code for a digital download of it. Sorry, no online purchases on this one, but we're happy to take a telephone pre-order and ship it to you -- (615) 354-1007 (or you can always drop by the store and purchase one once they arrive on the 3rd). We have limited quantities, so if you're interested in one, don't delay!

Before you call to order....please determine the size you want to order!
Size 1: fits bust size ranging from 30"-38" with a finished circumference of 64 1/2"
Size 2: fits bust size ranging from 40"-46" with a finished circumference of 72 1/2"
Size 3: fits bust size ranging from 48"-54" with a finished circumference of 78 1/2"

When choosing what size to make, please select the size closest to your actual full bust measurement (the circumference of the widest part of your bust). Please note that Veronika is intended to be worn with a large amount of positive ease and drapes longer in the back than in the front.

Again: these kits will be available on Tuesday, Oct 3. We're happy to take a pre-order, though: (615) 354-1007.
