Let’s Get Cozy

February 15, 2019

When the cold winds are howling outside your door and the mornings greet you with frosty window panes, it’s time to get cozy. As knitters, this our prime time, if anyone knows cozy, it’s us! We know how to hunker down wrapped in woollies, a steamy cuppa in hand, working on whatever is on our needles between sips.

We are so pleased to bring you our newest sweater pattern, perfect for wintry weather, the Antler pullover! We knit up in the super cushy Hinterland Range, a warm mix of 50% Canadian Rambouillet and 50% alpaca raised on the British Columbia coast.

The Antler Pullover

The Antler pullover is brought to you by popular demand! There have been more than a few knitters on Ravelry who hacked the original cardigan, and now you can knit it as a pullover too! The pullover has short row shaping to raise the back neck as well as a slightly deeper yoke and higher neckline than the cardigan. We hope you like the latest addition to the Antler family!

Hinterland

Hinterland is run by the Hanahlie. After a career in photography and design, Hanahlie came to farming following her desire to make things with her hands. She raises rescue alpacas on Pender Island and Hinterland yarn is a mix of this alpaca fiber and Canadian wool; find her story here.

For the Antler pullover we used Hinterland Range, a wonderfully soft and warm yarn, it was a delight to work with! Hinterland’s yarn line also includes Watershed (a bulky weight yarn) and Dusk (a new fingering weight yarn) all with the same alpaca/wool mix. I picked up a few skeins of Dusk recently and can’t wait to cast on!

    Lovely to see a few new blog posts when I checked in today. It’s always lovely to hear from the TCK ladies! May 2019 be a great, creative year for you both.

    I have always wanted to knit one of these (especially the cardigan), but, like most sweater patterns, the necks are too wide for me. I don’t care for the ‘boat’ necks, or wide necks. I like a sweater that is closer to the base of my neck. Otherwise, they look like the sweater is stretched out and it leaves my neck chilled. Haven’t figured out how to resolve this with most sweater patterns. :(

      It’s a super easy change in the Antler cardigan, you just want to work a couple more Antler cables before the decreases and then a more severe decrease at the neckline. The pullover has a higher neckline but you could work a more severe decrease there too.
