FINALLY. The Carnation has bloomed

Finally, after all these months and only because of Deb Gemmel, the Carnation is available for sale on Ravelry.

Designed specifically for plus-size women, the Carnation, a bulky-weight cabled vest closed with a coat-weight zipper, is the perfect garment for cool days, cold nights, and lots of dog walks.

Pick either a simple-to-knit braid cable or a more complicated, beautiful Celtic cable.

The Carnation is available in two shapes: straight sides or a modified A-line.

A thousand thank-yous to my test knitters, especially Maryanne, and a million, gazillion, quadrillion thank-yous to Deb Gemmel at Cabin Fever for her guidance, patience, and technical editing. I very literally couldn't have done it without her.

The Carnation comes in sizes 48-64 and is available for sale for $5.00 on Ravelry.
