Quince & Co Pine Point Cardigan Project
Pine Point is a round-yoke buttoned cardigan borrows its drop-stitch motif from Pam Allen's Perkins Cove pullover. The motif continues in the sleeves and down to the high waist, leaving a plain body. A pretty piece for warm weather! Cardigan is worked in the round from the top-down. It can easily be adapted to be made longer or shorter.
Quince & Co Kestrel is a new take on a simple linen yarn. Quince and Co. took the same Belgium-grown organic linen that they use in their little Sparrow and spun it this time in a ribbon structure (actually its a 'chainette' - a small knitted tube). Its flat surface adds a slight texture to simple knit and purl stitches. But we think the best thing about it is its incredible drape. Like all things linen, woven or knitted, Kestrel only gets better as you wash and wear it.
