Well, I had hoped to have my own version of the popular Tecumseh sweater by Caitlin Hunter finished before we launched the sweater kit but I didn’t quite make it. However, I think you can get the feel for it by seeing my version in progress. It is beautiful and squishy and oversized. The special order Wisconsin Woolen Spun in a DK weight is so wonderful with which to work.
What I can tell you is that the Tecumseh sweater is a joy to knit! I have loved every minute of working on this sweater. There is the perfect amount of simple colorwork sections and plain one-color knitting. I have tried mine on and I love how the fit is comfy and roomy.
Here is Caitlin’s brief comment on her beautiful design:
"This relaxed and comfy sweater is my graphic, modern dream come true! So easy to wear yet still stylish, the epitome of what I want in a sweater.
Knitted from the top down with rounds of colorwork, this design is straightforward and easy to knit while still being engaging."
We have two lovely colorways from which to choose. The contrast colors are the same, Pebble and Penny, for both options. The main color is either Birch (creamy white) or Rain Shower (light gray). Both are absolutely stunning. Molly, Evan’s wife, is working on the Quaker Gray version and I am working on the Birch version.
I know you’ll just love knitting this amazing sweater design by Caitlin. She is such a talent and has really taken the knitting world by storm with good reason. I am such a fan. Thanks, Caitlin, for letting us create this kit around your beloved Tecumseh sweater.
