NEW PATTERN - THE KAPSEL CARDIGAN!!!

NEW PATTERN - THE KAPSEL CARDIGAN!!!

K A P S E L

With an all-over textured pattern and modern silhouette, Kapsel is a versatile cardigan that is perfect for the office, outings with friends, or cozy nights in. It features a flattering modified drop shoulder, big front pockets, and a comfortable fit that’s as stylish as it is snuggly. Whether paired with favourite jeans or pj’s, you’ll find yourself reaching for Kapsel over and over again.

KAPSEL is a cardigan that has been a true testament of my love of modern, yet comfortable silhouettes. I set out over a year ago to design an everyday essential cardigan with a textured, clean aesthetic and a flattering fit that works on a variety of figures and with a wide range of silhouettes. I wanted it to be worn to work, at home - heck even to bed. Dressed up or down, paired with ready to wear & your fave handmades - I hope it works with your capsule wardrobe. I truly want you to enjoy your best life in it.

To celebrate the release of KAPSEL use code “kapsel15” to save 15% OFF your purchase on Ravelry (only). Coupon valid until 02/18/2019, midnight, PST.

BONUS Your purchase of KAPSEL also includes a link to our Kapsel Help Webpage filled with helpful important information in regards to gauge, pattern stitches and more! You’ll find tips for choosing your size, modifying Kapsel, and technical videos showing you how to work the main pattern stitch as well as the German Short Rows used in this sweater. We hope this ensure you enjoy knitting KAPSEL as much as we do!

SALE || 40TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION SALE - 40% OFF!

SALE || 40TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION SALE - 40% OFF!

Today is my 40th bday :) I'm feeling both excited for what's to come and yet nostalgic for the time that's past. It's definitely a strange feeling and one that I've been spending a lot of time reflecting on during yoga and meditation. I don't want to feel sad or scared of my 40's - I want to own them. I want to show 40 who's boss...lol, and have a fabulous time enjoying being comfortable in my own skin and knowing my true self.
