release into the wild

My Ridge pattern now lives on Ravelry here. It's constructed top-down with raglan shaping using Shalimar Yarns Breathless (in 'glacier' and 'gunmetal'). It features welts along the front opening and sleeve cuffs which take a bit of time but I think add an interesting detail to an otherwise straightforward sweater.

I decided on a pleat to add interest to the back and used Erica's ingenius decrease pleat in reverse.

The yarn is wonderful to work with and I think this will be a useful layer in cool-to-warm weather months.
