Our Winter 2021 publication *Creative Timber* is ready to send out.
The third issue of our new lifestyle pattern publication is finished and we are delighted with how it turned out. It was a project with all of us at the studio pitching in to make it happen and create a high-quality 108-page publication with 11 knitting patterns, interviews with designers, articles on our overall topic Creativity, and images shot in Ireland all beautifully photographed and printed on recycled uncoated paper. It was created during lockdown using Siana our packing room manager to model the knitwear, respecting social distancing and photographing 5km from our studio.
Designers featured in this Issue: Sari Nordlund, Barbara Gottwik, Carol Wessinger, Sam Kingsley, Allison Casserly, Daniel Griffin, Vanessa Pellisa, Kathryn Merrick, Masha Zyaparova, Coraline Kerisit

Daybreak is worked in the round, top-down. There is a section of texture around the circumference of the yoke, from the shoulder point onwards. Short row shaping is incorporated into the yoke and body to ensure a comfortable fit. Opportunities to customize the garment are included at relevant points throughout the instructions below.
Description: The Dolares sweater is a beautiful lace yoke sweater worked in one piece top down. You start with the neckband/ribbing, then work neck shaping with short rows and then continue working in the round. After the round yoke, you separate the sleeves and the body and continue working them separately. The yoke is a lace pattern and the rest of the garment is stockinette. It has just the right comfy ease and the drape is wonderful using our Sport base yarn.
