Back in the very early days of the Purl Bee when we had about a dozen readers, a quarter of whom were our mothers, we posted a pattern for a sweater that we called the Treeline Striped Cardigan. It has endured to this day, enjoying an active life on Ravelry and garnering many comments here on the Bee. Unfortunately, a not insignificant number of those comments have been... egads, corrections!
This pattern is really from the Purl Bee dark ages, from before we had meetings or schedules or plans, let alone editors, but since then, we've... matured. And so it's become time to rescue an old favorite from the annals of glitchy patterns. We've corrected some numbers, added a larger size and a schematic, streamlined the wording, and definitely made the whole pattern much more user friendly.
And on the style front, this new version has a more decisive collar (thanks to Faye, our intrepid re-designer!) and an updated choice of yarns. The New Treeline Striped Cardigan alternates between Manos Del Uruguay's soft and cozy Maxima and Alchemy's charismatic Kozmos. The result is a textural adventure, full of fascination and beauty!
So get started on the newly simplified (and finally accurate!) pattern here, and if you're curious about the original, it's in deep storage right here!
