New Yarns Resolutions (see what I did there?)

New years resolutions always sound like a good idea. Eat healthier, move a little more, finally get organized. And then, here we are, one month in. If any of you are like me, I had noble aspirations to decrease my clutter by using some my mounting yarn stash (if for nothing else than to make room for new yarn).

Today on the blog, we are sharing the most beautiful cardigan pattern for anyone with a little Ashland Bay Dakota yarn sitting in their stash. (For those of you without Dakota, fear not, suppliers are listed on Ravelry.) This pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry, written by Emma Welford with photos by Lindsey Topham


In the words of the pattern designer, ‘Tualatin is a classic cabled cardigan. It’s worked from the bottom up in pieces and seamed for a stable and long-lasting layering piece. Drop shoulder construction helps avoid the fussy process of setting in a curved sleeve cap while keeping the overall look and feel of the garment more casual.

If you have little experience with seaming, Tualatin is a great way to work on your skills since all the seams are straight! Knitterly details like a hi-lo split hem and a front cable trim that travels around to meet at the back of the neck make Tualatin stand out from the crowd.’
