March Friday Knit-along: Quirpon Coat

Course by Jody James

  • Intermediate




Cable patterns deliver a lot of drama with little effort, especially when worked in chunky, squishy Puffin. This substantial cardigan uses traditional cables that are part of the basic crossed stitch lexicon. When worked together with only a few stitches in between panels, Quirpon’s cables create bold, curving textures that grab attention. We love the roomy fit of this knitted car coat - perfect for layering. This classic design will be a go-to for years to come.

Every month we like to start a new knit-along project at Cattywampus. These are fun, casual gatherings with the support of our resident knit pro Jody James and a gaggle of fellow knitters. It's a chance to enjoy knitting a common project along with others. It's not really a class, so you should have some knit skills already. If you want to knit along with us, but need extra help, then please contact us to schedule a private lesson (in person or virtually). Our official knit-along meetups for this project are on Fridays 11 am - 1 pm, but you are welcome to knit anytime and at your own pace. Our gatherings are virtual so that we can be together wherever we are!
