Teazel Cardigan

Introducing Teazel, the latest fabulous addition to our ever growing collection of Loop patterns. Pretty pops of lace curve round the swingy silhouette of this gorgeous cardigan designed for us by the talented Bristol Ivy.
 Teazel Cardigan by Bristol Ivy for Loop, London
Bristol’s patterns draw on her interest in tailoring, focusing on structured lines and flattering shapes and Teazel is no exception. With the eyelet details swooping down to a soft flared shape, the cardigan shows the subtly hand dyed variation of Shalimar Breathless Cush (shown here in the colour Foggy Bottom).

Want to know more? Well, who better to tell us about the design than Bristol herself!

Hi Bristol! For those who don’t know you and your work, what’s an average day for you?
One of the cool (and sometimes exasperating!) things about running my own business is that there’s no real average day! I have a studio office in downtown Portland, Maine, about half a mile from my house, so typically during the week I try to walk there around 9:30 or 10.  From there, it’s a big shuffle of email, pattern math, class development, social media, pattern proofing, more email, swatching, and pretty much bottomless cups of tea.  I daily feel lucky that I am getting to do what I love!

 Tell us the story of how the design for Teazel started? A little birdie told us it was all the way back in the summer of 2015 at trade fair TNNA?
Yes! I ran into Susan within about an hour of arriving in Columbus for TNNA.  We had met the previous year when I came to the UK for Unwind Brighton, and had been corresponding as part of my previous job with Brooklyn Tweed.  I’ve long been an admirer of Loop and its aesthetic, and especially how beautifully they style and present their patterns and goods.  When Susan asked if I’d like to collaborate, I jumped at the chance! She had her eye on Shalimar’s new yarn, Breathless Cush, and once I squeezed it (it’s so squishy!) I knew it’d be perfect for a cozy but still stylish sweater.  We talked then and there about a drapey, slightly cropped cardigan, and I went home and started playing around with how to put that shape together with my aesthetic. Teazel is the result!

Teazel has several unique details such as a touch of lace and its swingy shape – what are your favourite aspects of the design?  And we always love to know why knitters chose the names they do for patterns, so why the name Teazel?
I’m particularly fond of the yoke on Teazel, as well as the pops of eyelet lace at all the edgings.  The yoke was a lot of fun to figure out! I love that there are just certain ratios that work with garments; on paper, Teazel is constructed pretty much like a typical, basic raglan sweater, just with the yarnovers in slightly different places.

It leads to a sweeping, feminine yoke that follows through throughout the body shaping.  I’m definitely going to keep playing with that shaping in further garments! And the eyelet lace edgings just feel so fun and fresh—there’s something about it that just makes me think of polka dots and springtime.   I think it would be easy for the sweater to feel heavy, since it’s a thicker yarn and an oversized shape, but the lace edgings keep it light and feminine.

Teasel in Bloom

The name was inspired by that eyelet lace, actually; I came across a photo of the teazel plant a while ago and was struck by the geometry and precision of the burrs on the bloom after flowering.  The swooping, slightly curving lines of the sepals under the bloom also echoed the yoke and body shaping, so it felt like a match made in heaven!

Teazel uses the Shalimar Breathless Cush, which gives this cardie such a beautifully subtle drape and soft texture. What did you love about using Breathless Cush for this project?

This yarn was so much fun to work with! I love the depth of colour—it always looked slightly different depending on the light, with so many facets and different hues.  It also did whatever I asked of it beautifully: lace, ribbing, beautiful clean stockinette.  I am looking forward to getting the chance to play with it again!

Well, soon you’ll be able to see the full range of colours that Loop stocks very soon as you are visiting us in London this weekend! You’re teaching three classes, Knitting Outside the Box, Brioche, Shawl Shapes (and at the moment there is one place left one each one – click on any class to head to the online shop to book!)
I’m so excited to come visit Loop! I’m a huge fan of locally produced yarns, so I’ll have my eye out for anything beautifully British to come home with me.  As for my classes, I have such a great time teaching.

I love showing people that they are in charge of their knitting and that they don’t have to be afraid to experiment and try new things.  Even if it doesn’t succeed the first time, at the end of the day you are still left with two sticks and some string and you can try again tomorrow! It’s the ultimate no risk artform and you can take that in so many amazing directions.  Really looking forward to it!

    Oh gosh this is gorgeous! I think it’d look fantastic in the “Neptune” colourway of Shalimar Breathless Cush.

  2. Jenny says:

    What a gorgeous design! I love the colour chosen, it really is a beautiful, versatile garment. If I won the pattern I would make it in the same colour exactly. Perfect!

  3. Ulli says:

    Wonderful! Would be lovely in Scarab!

  4. Yvonne says:

    I’d probably go for Bird Cage. But also the various grey tones and the purples are adorable.

  5. Paula tucker says:

    Whales tails! Best colour name ever!

  6. Yvonne Stein says:

    Hi, this is a great pattern. Would be nice in Wisteria.

  7. Yvonne says:

    This is a great pattern. Would be nice in Wisteria.

  8. Claire says:

    Fantastic pattern! After careful consideration, I think it would have to be Bluecrop for me – such an interesting and unusual shade.

  9. Diana McMillan says:

    Wow – what a pretty pattern and gorgeous yarn. I would choose to knit this in Slag!

  10. jane says:

    My colour would be the mandarin

  11. jane says:

    My colour choice would be Mandarin

  12. Cathryn Kay says:

    I would love to make this in Damask. Gorgeous!

  13. Susan Scott says:

    This would be divine in scarab, mole, slag, any of the colors! Just amazing!

  14. Sara says:

    Oh yes, that Foggy Bottom is the color of green I ALWAYS choose. But if I were to leave my safe colors I would choose Mole or Scarab. Love the pattern and the yarns. Thanks for the enlightening interview and the great giveaway!

  15. Gale COSCHI says:

    I am having a grey moment currently, so I would choose Mole!

  16. Andrea says:

    The yarn looks gorgeously soft. I would love to squish it for myself. :) The colours are amazing – bright, rich jewel-like shades. I have fallen in love with a few straight away – Bing, Foggy Bottom, Primula.. If I won the pattern I would make my Teazel cardigan in Whale Tales – I can already imagine this colour combined with many garments in my wardrobe.

  17. josiekitten says:

    It is gorgeous. I think I would choose Mole. I love the photo styling too.

  18. Denise Greany says:

    Such a beautiful pattern. I would choose Bees Knees I think, but its hard to choose!

  19. Miranda says:

    Teazel? Has to be a combination of bee’s knees for the cardigan, with parma violet for the lace collar and sleeve edgings..
    This is a fine coincidence – spent yesterday planting teasel seedlings I’ve grown out into the garden: the finches love them!

  20. Frankie Barnhart Smith says:

    Wow, four of my favorite things, Loop, Bristol Ivy designs, plants and yarn, wow! I love the citron and love potion color ways but it was really hard to choose, they are all lovely!!

  21. daniela says:

    I love Bristol’s style, I think I’ll knit the pattern in Juniper Berry

  22. kim mast says:

    What a gorgeous pattern. I might have to make a tough choice between slag a scarab. They are all so beautiful.

  23. Hannah says:

    I love this pattern and would also love to try this yarn! Such a hard choice, but I’m drawn to Whale’s Tail right now. Thanks for the generous giveaway!

  24. Sue Krekorian says:

    I would make it in Stonecrop – it really is rather gorgeous.

  25. Adriana says:

    I think it would look amazing in Radio Flyer!

  26. Cath cinnamon says:

    Has to be whales tails for me…..I NEED a blue cardigan BADLY
    (Would settle for bird cage or petal if I came second….)

  27. Philippa Swann says:

    Mole is lovely. A subtle and classic colour to show off the lovely details of Teazel.

  28. Sue Krekorian says:

    I meant Blue crop – sorry for the brain hiccup…

  29. Sue Krekorian says:

    I meant Bluecrop – sorry for the brain hiccup…

  30. Linda Rumsey says:

    lindarumsey on Rav

  31. Vanessa says:

    What a lovely pattern…I’d love to knit it up in either Bee’s Knees or
    Vintage Brass

  32. Jules says:

    Love, love, love the pattern! I think I would choose Bees knees or Mole but I am honestly not sure too many choices!

  33. Kirsty Johnston says:

    Lovely pattern which has jumped to the top of my queue! I would go for the Bees Knees colourway although almost impossible to choose!

  34. Naomi says:

    I think I’d choose wisteria, but there are so many gorgeous colors I might change my mind.

  35. Nia says:

    Wow! So many lush shades to choose from, but I think I’d go for Scarab if pushed (or maybe Juniper Berry??!) :)

  36. Lisbeth Sulsbrück says:

    I would love to make the cardigan in citris and then think off your shop and yarn every time I put it on.

  37. Deborah C says:

    What a gorgeous sweater! I’d make it in Wisteria, it’s my favorite shade of blue.

  38. FranF says:

    Foggy Bottom would be my first choice – but I love Shortcake too!

  39. Carole C says:

    Foggy Bottom for me …..love the name …love the colour

  40. Elizabeth says:

    No competition, all of them : )

  41. Liz says:

    I love the eyelet detail. Whales tails or Foggy bottom for me.

  42. Kelly says:

    Wow, I just love this. I would choose ‘scarab’ – and if I can get through my long knitting queue, I might just have to get going on this project. It looks lovely and squishy!

  43. Fiona McQueen says:

    Lovely pattern and beautiful yarn would have to knit in either Violet or Juniper

  44. Marilyn says:

    Petal please for me -it looks so sweet and pretty like Teaze!!

  45. Sue says:

    Lovely cardigan. It would look fabulous in Love Potion.

  46. Bravo to Ivy on a brilliant design with just enough details to make the knitting interesting. I would choose Scarab for this card, because it seems just a little bit mysterious.

    Wish I could be in London for the classes!


  47. Bordergirl says:

    Beautiful design and very wearable. Whales tails – a great name for a beautiful color would be my choice.

  48. iaia_me says:

    Ohhhh! really really “primaveroso” (springy? springish??)! I’d love to knit it in Whales Tails, should I win the pattern!

  49. Kelly Mains-Sheard says:

    Stunning design! So many beautiful colours to choose from! Scarab for me, please!

  50. Ingrid Olsen says:

    Really lovely pattern, difficult to choose but vintage brass is appealing today.

  51. Meredith says:

    Lovely sweater! I’d love to make it in Scarab!

  52. barbara stupp says:

    I would sooooo make this in scarab

  53. Yvonne Kolesar says:

    They are all delicious colours but for me it would have to be….. Scarab. Simply fab pattern.

  54. Andre says:

    A gorgeous design, love the flow of the yarn. The colourway I would choose would be Candelabra…or Vintage Brass.

  55. Mer says:

    I wear a lot of darker olive greens, and love lighter golden greens, but have been timid to try them. So I am drawn to Foggy Bottom, especially because I lived in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood in Washington, DC, where I attended university. (Hopefully this posts – my last try with my whole name, Mary Ann, didn’t post, so please disregard if this is a duplicate.)

  56. Katrina says:

    I LOVE the pattern.Petal please!

  57. Paula says:

    Cork board looks intriguiging!

  58. A beautiful pattern, classy,stylish, feminine, unique
    Knit in Wisteria it would be perfect for evening wear as well as day.

  59. Mandy Sturman says:

    I think I’d need a trip to London to be absolutely sure – but I’ m hankering after Mandarin on first look.

  60. Kim Strand says:

    It would be a hard choice between Scarab and Mandarin but I think in the end it just might be Mandarin. Beautiful & unique pattern.

  61. Felicity says:

    Too much gorgeous choice – but probably I would plump for Driftwood

  62. Sandra says:

    I would like scarab as always get blue and looks lovely

  63. Carole Finger says:

    A stunning pattern. Whilst I usually opt for grays, this time
    I envision myself in Bing.

  64. Ann Caldicott says:

    I would love to knit this beautiful pattern in Slag, my wardrobe would sing with this colour.

  65. Miriana says:

    What a lovely pattern and yummy yarn! It’s hard to choose a colour with so many beautiful shades, but I’d go with Whales Tales.

  66. Bettina says:

    I’m in love with Mandarin, gorgeous, waaaaouououh !!!

  67. Ellen Kramer says:

    I love the sweater and would love it in scarab.

  68. Heather McDonald says:

    Bees Knees – lovely colour and lovely pattern, or Bird Cage, or Whales Tails, or even one of each colour as they are all rather gorgeous.

  69. Maghar says:

    Lovely pattern, especially the sleeve detail. I think it Wisteria would highlight this design beautifully

  70. Rachel Leonard says:

    Scarab for me. Oh, but that yarn is beautiful and teazel looks wonderful

  71. Sally says:

    Gorgeous pattern and fab choice of colours but for me I think it would be whales tales, love the variations in colour.

  72. Maureen says:

    Beautiful!!! I would choose Foggy Bottom

  73. Sarah says:

    For me it’s between Whales’ Tails, Bees’ Knees and Love Potion; I just can’t pick only one!

  74. Prue Manson says:

    Wisteria is singing to me

  75. Susan Howard says:

    Do I have to pick just one?? This gorgeous pattern would be stunning in Bees Knees!

  76. RuthAnn says:

    I just love this! I think this design in whales tails would be stunning. Wow!!

  77. JoanS says:

    Love this! It’s absolutely beautiful! I’d love to make it in Wisteria!

  78. Laura says:

    They are all so lovely, but I especially love mandarin!

  79. Sue says:

    I would love this in Bluecrop or Parma Violets. Lovely pattern.

  80. Nadine Sansom says:

    All of the colours are so beautiful but I’d choose Foggy Bottom to make these gorgeous knit!
    X Nadine

  81. Stacia says:

    Gorgeous cardi and really beautiful colours. It is hard to pick, but I think I would go for Foggy Bottom – I have been looking for just this sludgey/edgey green. It works with so many other colours (corals / browns / blues)

  82. Alison Hellyer says:

    Emerald Isle for Spring

  83. Charly says:

    Shortcake beautiful colourway

  84. Tara Blackwell says:

  85. Yvonne Veldhuizen says:

    I love them all, the pattern is so beautifull and than the colors of the yarn, it makes a yarn heaven to me. I cannot choose between parma violet and whale tales. Of course all the colors are irresistible

  86. HanneM says:

    I would go for Whales Tailes or Petal – different but both very beautiful.

  87. Heather says:

    I would make it in whales tales.I adore those shades of blue and the hand dye gives it such a gorgeous depth of colour.

  88. Debbie Bramham says:

    Beautiful pattern, and gorgeous choice of colours. Scarab is my favourite (I think!).

  89. Lucy McLaurin says:

    Gorgeous pattern! I think Juniper Berry would be my choice as it’s a stunning colour and I think would look beautiful knitted up as Teasel.

  90. Cindy kane says:

    Love this pattern and my color choice would be Sedge.

  91. Mit says:

    Bees knees for me!

  92. Judith Haycock says:

    The pattern has a coziness about it and I can think back many years and see myself sitting on Northumbrian beaches as a child wearing a cardigan my mum knit in a colour very similar to Whales Tails.

  93. Tatiana Verdon says:

    Divine balance of sway and structure my Teazel cardigan deserves a bright beautiful colour – Love Potion (No.9).
    Please be mine.

  94. Margie K. says:

    Cannot decide between driftwood and sedge!

  95. Fiona Brennan says:

    I’d pick slag. Not only does the colour look gorgeous but thr name makes me chuckle.

  96. Vanessa B. says:

    Damson or Birdcage would be my choice. All are such beautiful colours that it is hard to choose. Love the pattern which would look perfect in either colour.

  97. Debbie says:

    Oh, how I love this sweater! I would knit this using “bees knees”. This will be my first sweater that I’ll knit for myself. Promise.

  98. Shannon A says:

    Love this pattern! I would choose the Mandarin color to knit it!!

  99. Jane says:

    What a gorgeous pattern! I have a thing for purple so I would definitely choose the Parma Violet.

  100. Jane says:

    Just lovely! Wisteria I think.

  101. Cindy says:

    Beautiful pattern, I love the drape. So many fab colours, I’d probably use Wisteria.

  102. Irene Allin says:

    I’m torn between Emerald Isle and Petunia – easy peasy solution, I’ll just have to make both!

  103. Christine Guise says:

    Beautiful design and so many lovely colours to choose from,-I would like it in Tamarillo.

  104. Kathryn Heathcote says:

    I’d have to go for ‘Bees Knees’ (do bees even have knees?)

  105. gwen lemoine says:

    What a awesome cardigan! Definitely in Bees Knees. This would be like honey dripping from your needles!

  106. Carolyn says:

    Damson for me!

  107. Irina says:

    Scarab, definitely!

  114. Ursula Irwin says:

  115. Karita says:

    Wisteria. I can just imagine it over some of my dresses. :-)

  116. Sara says:

    Whales Tails. What lovely yarn!

  117. Jean Ashley says:

    I would choose Scarab to knit this lovely pattern.

  118. andrea says:

    Beautiful! The Bee’s Knees is the Bee’s Knees to me

  119. Merry says:

    *frustrated moan* I think I’d go with Corkboard. But then I really also love Bee’s Knees. But maybe that’s too yellow for me? Maybe I’d use Bees for a beenie (incorrect spelling totally intended) instead. Yes. Corkboard would be completely yummy ♡

  120. Linda Andersen says:

    Would love to vin…and be able to knit in my size

  121. Julie Morrison says:

    Love bees knees and think it would look amazing, lovely pattern and yarn x

  122. Libby says:

    I would pick Petal for a soft cozy sweater on those cool summer nights.

  124. Paula says:

  125. JENNY says:

    Ooooh so hard to chose. If pressed I would pick Scarab, but really they all are so good.

  126. Kasi says:

    Wisteria is the color for me!

  127. Fiona Morrison says:

    I think there’s something incredibly regal looking about Teazel. The sheen of the Shalimar yarn suits it beautifully. I would knit it in Bird Cage I think, a perfecr cardi for chillier summer evenings

  128. Mary M says:

    It would be gorgeous in birdcage!

  129. Messy Karen says:

    definitely Foggy Bottom for me, but i would love to see it in Petal, or make and gift it in Petal. all the colors are awesome!

  130. Christina says:

    Beautiful pattern and fabulous colours. A 30’s evoking Bird cage for me !

  131. Doris says:

    Would love to make it in “Bees Knees” because the pattern is The Bees Knees!!

  132. TrishKnits says:

    What a gorgeous cardi! And so many beautiful rich colours to decide amongst. But I think Damson is the one for me. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  134. Sally Brock says:

    Wow! I would pick Bing! :D

  135. Callie says:

    I would love to knit this in Sedge! Beautiful design!

  136. Laurie LeCours says:

    Beautiful sweater! I think it would look great in Bing.

  137. Laurie says:

    Beautiful sweater! It would look great in Bing.

  138. Tara says:

    Scarab or Mole! Such stunning colors & design!

    The damson is wonderful! Love the cardi!

  140. Linda Serrao says:

    Would love to make this for my daughter in Scarab.

  141. Donna says:

    This is such a lovely cardigan! I’d make it in Whale Tales.

  142. Kathleen Champlain says:

    Just loving the Juniper Berry and also Teazel.

  143. Denise says:

    What a beautifully designed sweater! I would love to see it knit up in “petal.” Thanks again for another lovely giveaway.

  144. KirstenLN says:

    This pattern I so beautiful!
    I’ve had a hard time choosing one colourway over the others but decided on Scarab.

  145. Jo says:

    I would choose Mandarin – something zingy and citrus to bring some brightness into what can be a dull-ish working wardrobe. It’d perfectly fuel my dreams of pairing orange with every blue item of clothing I posess!

  146. Emma says:

    Ooooh,gorgeous! I love the shade Emerald Isle :)

  147. Kath Webber says:

    It’s beautiful! Love the yoke shaping, so clever. That yarn looks so delicious, the variations in colour are stunning. I’m drawn to mustardy yellows and grey- so for me it’s between Bee’s Knees and Slag. Though Scarab is also catching my eye!

  148. Julie McLaren says:

    Birdcage! So pretty ……

  149. Jane says:

    Too much loveliness – almost paralysed by indecision, but Foggy Bottom and Bees Knees are just edging into the lead.

  150. Karen Tough says:

    The pattern and yarn colours are beautiful.Finding it hard to pick just one but I do love Byzantine I think its called.A lovely deep,rich colour.

  151. Philippa Kirkham says:

    I would choose Juniper Berry! What a divine colour! I just want to squeeze the yarn!

  152. Jennifer says:

    This jumper fills about three holes in my wardrobe. I’d make it in bees knees or driftwood and wear it every day!

  153. jane says:

    Without a doubt Petal

  154. Kirstie Kwiatkowski says:

    Pattern is just beautiful and all of the colours are gorgeous! I’d choose Slag.

  155. Lymari says:

    I’d love to win a copy of Teazel! I would chose “Corkboard” for my shade of Shalimar Breathless Cush. Thank for the chance.

  156. Debby ware says:

    Could not imagines more perfect color then the one Bristol chose! I would wear it all day every day

  157. Francesca says:

    The texture of the lacy neckline looks lovely. All the details are so precise, I cannot even imagine the math involved to get the sleeve’s eyelets to line up with those on the side of the body. I would go for a very light grey hue such as Driftwood, but Candelabra drew my attention as well, I’d love to see how that gradient shade turns out in the fabric!

  158. Sue D says:

    Love the juniper color in this beautiful sweater pattern!

  159. Maya says:

    Gorgeous yarn! Very cute design. The only negative I see is the bulge that is created by the sleeves and clearly visible in the photo of the back of the cardigan.

  160. Georgie says:

    I would love to knit it in Land! Katie Scarlett.

  161. Anne-Charlotte says:

    Beautiful sweater … Pureps It would look great in Ore or in Bee’s Knees

  162. Christine Guise says:

    Beautiful design!So many lovely colours to choose from,-think I would like Tamarillo. Christine.

    • Cecilia Ballesteros says:

      The pattern is amazing! and Shalimar… looks so pretty and so many colors… that difficult to choose… I would not know from which my mind… Ore, Parma Violet, Emerald Isle, Birdcage…

  163. Judith Hogan says:

    I love the swing of this cardi. Would love to see it in Bees Knees.

  164. Gerry says:

    Love so many of the colours but probably Wisteria.

  165. Liz M says:

    Great little sweater! Foggy Bottom shown in the sample is one of my favorite Shalimar colors, but this would also be lovely in Byzantium for something perfectly purple.

    I am tempted to say Slag just because of the name but in reality it has to be Whales Tails. I’ll be knitting that cardigan pattern regardless!
