Final Heirloom Pattern release: Meet My Favorite Cardigan and Kilgore Mitts!

We are pleased to announce our final release of new fall patterns for Heirloom. Welcome My Favorite Cardigan by Emily Platzer, and Kilgore Mitts by Amber Corcoran. Also updated is our popular My Favorite Sweater pattern, now featuring our Heirloom Romney yarn!

My Favorite Cardigan is by superstar knitter and Fancy Tiger instructor Emily Platzer. My Favorite Cardigan is a cardigan version of our popular My Favorite Sweater. This pattern is a choose-your-own adventure style pattern. You get to make your own choices in terms of fit and length for the most flattering and personalized sweater possible. This cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top down so you can try it on as go. The garter stitch button band is picked up and knit with mitered corners for a perfect fit.

Finish your cardigan with fun Liberty of London fabric buttons

Professionally finished mitered corners line up with arm shaping

Wearing My Favorite Cardigan is so much fun!

Kilgore Mitts is a new pattern from Amber. These stylish mittens make use of increasing and decreasing along with garter stitch ridges to create an awesome arrow shape. You can choose to make fingerless mitts or full mittens in three different sizes! Sturdy Heirloom Romney yarn will hold up to wear and keep your hands toasty warm and looking good.

My Favorite Sweater was our first ever published pattern and continues to be our best selling pattern to date. This sweater pattern is knit seamlessly from the top-down and is written so that the finished sweater will fit your measurements. It looks great on everyone, men and women alike. The pattern has always been for a worsted to aran weight yarn so we were super excited to knit it up in Heirloom. The new Heirloom My Favorite Sweater is the same great pattern you know and love with fresh new photos. The pale yellow Quinoa is a great color to go with almost anything!

We hope you enjoy our new patterns. If you have a shop, all of our patterns are available for wholesale purchase in high quality print, so please email us for a current linesheet. Check out Ravelry or our Etsy shop for the full line of Fancy Tiger Patterns!
