Off the needles: Gemini

We would like to introduce our new shop sample, Gemini. This is one beautiful summer sweater!

Jane Richmond's Gemini on knitty.com is described as:
This tee shirt is knit using a cotton linen blend at a loose gauge. The result is an elastic fabric that works up quickly and fits beautifully. The top half of the yoke features a lace panel covering the shoulders and back.
Named after the duality of the Gemini, this pullover can be worn with the lace to the back for a more casual look or with the lace facing forward for a dressier look.  
Casual
Dressy
We selected Rowan's Creative Linen for our shop sample and the finished garment is just lovely!

Gemini as a class?  I can share that we are currently exploring having Gemini as a class option in our next round of classes so stay tuned...

Get your copy of Gemini here on knitty.com, visit our Ravely project page here and come see us at Firefly Fibers to select your color of Creative Linen!

Happy Knitting!
Alisa

P.S. I'm already dreaming of another in  our Blue Sky Alpaca's Skinny Cotton.

    1. Thanks, Jane! Your pattern is wonderful and I am trying to resist casting on another since ours is on display!
