Patternum Novum: Caeles

Have you guys seen the new Spring/Summer issue of Twist Collective yet? I'm beyond thrilled to have had a design included in the beautifully-styled "Bloom" story

Caeles is a springy, summery tank knit in Valley Yarns Goshen from the top down all in one piece. (Well, you start out knitting the back only, but it soon becomes an in-the-round'er.) It's a simple piece that is meant to be fitted around the bust, but flare out around the hips, and uses lots of short rows to shape the collar and sleeve caps:

Caeles is written for 8 sizes ranging from a 29 ¾ -57 ¾" bust -- you can find out more information here and see the rest of the issue here. As usual, there are beautiful knits and gorgeous photography galore -- the "Rain Date" story was almost too pretty to handle -- go check it out!

How do you pronounce caeles?

Hilary said...

Hi Anonymous -- it's pronounced "KAI-leyss", with the "ai" pronounced like "aye", the "ey" like in they, and the "ss" at the end like in "less" (rather than a "z" sound like in "plays").
