Rustic Tweed Elektra

Wowza!
These pictures were sent to me by our yarn rep Cindy after her visit to Sin City Knit Shop, a local yarn store in Las Vegas, NV.

The store held a class to knit the Elektra Cardigan (Ravelry link) by Twisted Sisters.

The 15 people in the class all used Queensland Collection Rustic Tweed yarn. Rustic Tweed is a 63% Wool, 27% Alpaca, 7% Acrylic, 3% Viscose blend that has about 318 yards per 100 gram hank.

We’re told everyone in the class “used about 4 hanks.” That’s not a big investment in yarn for such a fabulous sweater!

Maria looks justifiably pleased with her new cardigan.

They are supposed to take a group picture when everyone in class is finished knitting.

I can’t wait to see it!

One thought on “Rustic Tweed Elektra

  1. Diane Bleicher says:

    I love this Elektra Cardigan, with the stripes on the sleeves and I wondered where I could get the pattern. I am a ravelry member but could not find the pattern. It seems to be in a leaflet and therefore not available on PDF. I loved the light blue color and I wondered whether you could let me know what to do next. Perhaps I can get the pattern from you and the yarn as well.

    Thanks
