In honor of Jillian Moreno’s new spinning how-to, Yarnitecture, I’m giving away a copy of the book to one of you lucky readers! Yarnitecture is packed full of expert spinning information, and includes twelve original patterns to best compliment your newly found spinning skills, including my own Maya Cardigan pattern.
I haven’t had the chance to take one of her classes in person, but Jillian’s Craftsy class helped me grow as a spinner, so I was trilled when she asked me to contribute a pattern to Yarnitecture. The book is an excellent place to learn more about spinning if you, like me, started knitting and soon found your eye wandering to the luxurious un-spun fiber that you encountered in local yarn stores, on Etsy, or during sheep and wool festivals. Jillian takes you through every step of the process, but the priority is always to create the yarn you want.
My Maya Cardigan pattern, exclusive to Yarnitecture, is a versatile, drapey sweater. Maya is a little bit lacey, but not at all fussy, and perfect for showing off your precious handspun.
