From Susan — Kauni has a Little Sister

Filed under: Susan's Kauni Cardigan — lv2knit @ 9:42 pm

Ruth Sorensen is just amazing.  She really is the master of working with Kauni yarns.  Here is her latest design:

It is quite striking.  I bought the pattern even though it is not on my short list at this moment in time (I need a little break from my Kauni family ;)).  I bought the pattern to acknowledge the creativity and talent that many of us are taking advantage of with Ruth’s free pattern.  I want her to get something out of her moment of fame!  I need to finish a few things before I even think about this one, though I really like it.  For those of you who have not yet started a Kauni, this is certainly one to consider. 

Hmmmmm, I could start over—-N-n-n-n-a-a-a-a-a-h-h-h-h-h!! 😉

PS — By request, here is a link to the Kauni Knitalong (KauniKAL) that describes another source for Ruth’s pattern.  I actually bought my pattern from this source but gave Ruth’s information so the link would be directly to her.  Sorry if people had trouble buying the pattern from Ruth!


  1. I too bought the pattern and I ordered the yarn when I ordered for my kauni cardigan (that is still on the needles)We have everyone back to college- so I am hopeful that I will have more knitting time and less cooking and LAUNDRY time. I really thought that I did a better job of making my boys self sufficient- I guess I am an enabler!!

  4. Susan- This comes under the title of “stranded colorwork”- it shows that
    the possibilities are truly endless, and Ruth is an amazing talent.

    What is your opinion of the yarn? I really like it, it’s got alot
    of body, and is very similar to Shetland. It’s spun nicely too.

  5. Now this design is more me… definitely something I would wear. I am such a “fall” person. Where do we buy the pattern? I will definitely puchase one and support her, she is obviously a very talented knitter. I just hope the pattern is in english 🙂
    Have a hap-hap-happy Thursday!

  6. Yes, I saw the pattern on Ruth’s site (and a myspace page, of all places!)
    yesterday. Did you see the simple, yet effective patters that Jean Thompson
    and Astrid are using?

    Renee (a good yarn), Deepa and I ordered Kauni EQ a few weeks ago, and I
    think only one of us plans to knit Ruth’s original design. (Even then,
    Renee is thinking about knitting the pattern vertically from sleeve to

    We’re planning a local Kauni KAL, perhaps starting in December.

  7. Ahh, I meant Jeannie Townsend!
    She used EQ and the Teal mixture (EL? EZ? ES?). I think it’s really
    lovely- fair isle without switching colors all the time!

  8. Do you have a link for a place that we can buy her pattern other than her site? I’d like to buy it
    to support her. I haven’t gotten to start the first one yet….still looking for the yarn…but going to
    do it!
    I love your blog…..You both are amazing knitters!

  9. Thanks for pointing out Ruths pattern, I had to go over and buy it straight away it’s so lovely. Then I had to buy some yarn, after all what would I do if they run out?! If anyone asks I’m saying you made me! No, really, thankyou!
