Madge, Part Wrap and Part Sweater


What a find in my email this morning! Meet Madge. Today’s Lion Brand newsletter contained this awesome original pattern, designed by the knitter Katy Smith, who writes the Philigry blog. She developed it because she wanted a garment that combined sleeves with the look of a wrap. It can be symmetrical or asymmetrical depending upon where you place the snaps, and she describes it as a rectangle with holes for sleeves. And it looks super in Woolease, an inexpensive yarn that comes in many colors. I use it often and have found that it really holds its shape after many washings.
