I am horribly excited about this. I was going to save this for my next post because it would be my 100th, but I couldn’t wait. (I also don’t have anything else to post about.) I was going to hold out until tomorrow so I could post this earlier in the day, but here I am at 9PM! I am giddy and proud to present my first sweater pattern, Miette. Download Miette here.


I decided to name the pattern after a character in the film La Cité Des Enfants Perdus who always wore red. I was watching that movie while I worked on this version of the cardigan and I decided that Miette the character and Miette the cardigan suited each other.


By the way, these are the pictures that I liked but couldn’t go in the pattern. This one didn’t make the cut because it has so much random stuff and you can’t see the tree branch I grabbed. Can you spy the blue truck, horse trailer, gate with Christmas lights, and/or well pump?


Anyways, Miette is a free download on Ravelry. The cardigan is actually not too bad to wear in the summer because I knit it using Cascade Sierra, though today it was 100+ out. Not really cardigan weather. I’ve described this design too many times in posts so if you’d like to read more about the cardigan, please check out the first version or download the pattern.

    It is beautiful, and an absolutely perfect colour on you. It is 54ºF (12ºC in my neck of the woods) here, and ☂.In fact, it has been raining for the past 10 days or so, and it is supposed to be the height of summer. I haven't even chanced going outside recently because I haven't been too well, but just standing on the balcony for a few minutes yesterday I found myself in hat, cowl and coat.Once autumn starts to think about showing its head around the corner your lovely cardigan will help to keep of those slight chills in the evening.

  4. Congratulations on the cardigan. It is gorgeous. I have downloaded already.

    Anon: Thanks and I don't think I did.

  19. […] how to make charts with Illustrator. Then I put together my pattern with InDesign. I had finished Miette by this point so I had an idea of what I was doing. I needed photos to finish Tea Time’s […]

    Just discovered this cardigan through http://pattythesnugbug.com/2011/finally-finished-miette-cardigan/#comment-4060 – I love it!!! I’m printing the pattern right away, and will check my yarn stash to see if I can start this weekend already, if not, I must have time to go yarn shopping!

    The cardigan is absolutely adorable, I must say once more! And really great outfit.

  21. HI – I love this pattern and have downloaded it and I want to use cascade sierra in the ochre colour in your picture. Can you tell me what colour it is as I looked on the yarn colour card and the closest was No. 443 Gold.
