Monomania has sold out at this time. We will have more kits at a future date. Details to come. Thank you!!!!

It’s time for some chevron/colorwork mania! Introducing Monomania!

Monomania will debut as an exclusive kit from Weaver Knits & The Plucky Knitter, which will go on sale right here on the Plucky BLOG tomorrow, Friday, July 12th at 9 a.m.! There will be over a dozen color combinations (19 at last count!) from which to choose, with more to come in the future.

This kit is available in Plucky Feet only at this time. That is the yarn used in the design and suggested for its crisp stitch definition and memory.

Please note: This is a pre-order item and ships according to our pre-order policy. You will receive a coupon code to download your PDF copy of Monomania. You will not receive a hard copy of your pattern.

Yarn requirements!
890 (1040, 1320, 1530, 1830) yds of PLUCKY FEET:
260 (300, 380, 440, 530) yds in A;
240 (280, 360, 420, 500) yds in B;
200 (230, 290, 340, 400) yds in C;
90 (230, 290, 330, 400) yds in D.

A note from Ann Weaver, designer: The pattern includes instructions for an elbow-length sleeve version and a three-quarter-length sleeve version. Yardage given is for the three-quarter-length sleeve version. The elbow-length sleeve version requires 40 fewer yards of B.

I wanted to make a lightweight cardigan that used an allover large chevron pattern in several colors; I wanted this to be the sort of cardigan you could wear with everything and the sort of pattern that you could make multiple times, using different yarn and color combinations.

All the shaping in Monomania is accomplished without interrupting the chevron pattern. Because the increases and decreases for each size are different, the 37-page pattern includes line-for-line instructions for each size. All sizes have been test knit and tech edited to ensure that this project is not only clear and easy but also a lot of fun to knit.

For a few months, not a day went by when I was not thinking about chevrons and working toward my goal of a full-on chevron sweater that looks good on a wide range of figures and lends itself to all manner of color combinations, from subtle ombre to stark contrast. Here’s the result. Enjoy!

For more information, see the Monomania thread in the Plucky group on Ravelry and on Ann’s blog. Everyone is getting super chatty talking color choice/placement, size, ease and more. Have fun!Thank you for your enthusiasm for this kit. What a happy riot of zigzagging color!

P.S. Check out the Flickr photo stream for more color options.
