Hurray for Hannah Fettig

Three cheers for Hannah Fettig who joins the growing list of designers offering lovely designs for the plus-size market. Last week, Hannah re-released her popular Featherweight Cardigan in a 62-inch finished bust size. Made in lace yarn on size 6 needles, this cardi knits up quickly into the perfect summer cardi. Nearly 3000 knitters have made this sweater - check out the projects.

And then this morning, Hannah published the Calligraphy Cardigan, an updated classic with wide front bands, a full ribbed collar, and a slim fit. Worked from the top down in Madelinetosk Tosh DK (I've got to try this yarn!), this cardigan comes into sizes up to 60-inch finished bust size.

If this sweater looks familiar, it's because it is the reincarnation of the Gooseberry Cardigan featured on the cover of Interweave Knits Weekend 2009.The original Gooseberry came in the affordable Valley Yarns Northfield, a DK weight merino, alpaca, and silk blend. I've always loved this sweater but now it actually comes in my size via the Calligraphy Cardigan.

Hannah offers other sweaters in sizes up to a 56-inch finished bust, including the Spring Ribbed Cardigan, the Contented Cardi, the Trail Jacket, the Mediumweight Pullover, and more.
