Figheadh Yarnworks - Designs by Jennifer Hagan

Figheadh Yarnworks is a local couple (Tacoma, WA), Jennifer and Fred Hagan, that have been in business since 2003 designing beautiful garments and accessories.  They are a wholesale only company, but have a store locator to help you find where to buy their patterns.  Here are a few that feature Cascade Yarns:

Aran Wiggles Turtleneck Pattern

Cascade Cash Vero (55% Merino/33% Microfiber/12% Cashmere): 50 g/98 yds, 12 (13, 14, 15, 15) skeins, color #003


Here’s an Aran style sweater with a kick. Knit in the round, the raglan shaping makes for an easy finish—just close up the armholes and add the turtle.

Cascade Venezia Worsted (70% Merino Wool / 30% Silk): 100 g/218 yds, 6 (6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 9) skeins, color #123


Knit this traditonally styled sweater with no seams. The structure is Guernsey in origin, but the stitch patterns are Aran. Joined together, these two styles will give you a sweater that’s all one piece as soon as you work the last BO! Saddle shoulders and underarm gussets give the wearer comfort, and the fun cables give the knitter a little challenge. Back features same cable which appears on sleeves.

Cascade Yarns Eco Wool (100% wool): 478 yds, (437 m), 8.75 oz (250 g); color #8016, 2 (2, 3, 3, 3) skeins


A smaller version of the Iain:  this garment sports a pullover style with attached hood, which carries the pattern as wellA somewhat traditional Aran sweater makes the stitch patterns work in unusual ways as the cables subtly emerge between areas of basketweave stitch. This garment sports a pullover style with attached hood, which carries the pattern as well. Drop saddle shoulder continues one of the cable motifs from the hood out the full length of the sleeve.

Ollipheist

Cascade Yarns Cotton Rich DK (64% cotton, 36% nylon): 50 g/135.6 yds, 4 (4, 5, 5, 6, 7) skeins MC & 2 (2, 3, 3, 3, 4) skeins CC


Ollipheist is The Great Beast in Celtic legend, and is another form of the Gaelic uilebheist (oo-le-veist) which means “monster”. This monster is scaly on one side and bony on the other!
