This gorgeous cardigan was my favorite from the Ginkgo trunk show last month, Worked in elegant Berroco Ginkgo, Jessamyn is exactly what you want to take you gracefully into the fall season, Worked in one piece with only two small seams at the shoulder, Jessamyn is as fun to knit as it is to wear.


The fabric is nice and squishy and really highlights Ginkgo's beautiful texture. It looks like ribbing, but there's no purling. In fact, you can knit the entire body of Jessamyn with no purling at all! Sounds like magic, but, I promise it's super easy.

I've been champing at the bit to start this project, and I thought I'd invite you to knit along with me. Several of you have even bought the yarn already! We'll meet in the shop to work on it, but I'm also going to blog about it regularly so that folks who are not local can be part of the fun. I'll send out the blog posts at least weekly, and occasionally more often if I find out something important. Click here to register for the knitalong, and you'll get the posts in your inbox along with the regular blog.

The hardest part will be choosing which beautiful Ginkgo color you want. Come by the shop and get your yarn and the pattern so you'll be ready to swatch with us Saturday, September 3rd at 12:30 pm

Yes! Sign me up for the Jessamyn KAL!

Hi Lee – not a problem. I’ll be sending the posts out to the whole blog list, so you can knitalong from out of town, or not. Either way, enjoy the posts. They’ll have good info that’s applicable to all sweater projects as well as Jessamyn. Happy knitting! ~Ellen

I will not be able to attend the Jessamyn KAL as I will be out of town. I accidentally signed up twice. So sorry!
