Quesnel. It's finally here!
I've been working on this project for what seems like forever and I'm so excited that I finally get to share it!
Quesnel (kwen-el) is an oversized open front cardigan knit with lots of positive ease. The shawl collar and rolled cuffs make it a casual and versatile wardrobe staple while the vertical stripes of texture keep it interesting to knit and to wear. The Fibre Co.’s Arranmore Light creates a light, warm fabric perfect for fall. Instructions are included for two versions: a coat, which falls just below the hips, and a longer full, which falls above the knee.
This is knit with The Fibre Company's newest yarn Arranmore Light, which is a wonderful blend of wool, cashmere and silk and just feels like fall. The colourway I've used, Ruari, is the perfect shade of cool red that has these amazing little pops of blue. It feels kind of rustic and luxurious all at the same time (and how they always manage to do that, I'll never know!)
If our summer hadn't been so unseasonably hot, I would have worn this Every. Day. and you can bet that once it finally does cool down here in the Pacific Northwest, I will be.
