Maxim Cyr

Maxim Cyr (Max) has something of a dual personality: by day he is a childrens’ book author and illustrator, by night, he is a passionate knitter who launched his first pattern, the “For Fox Sake” sweater in December 2018. What he loves most is to insert one of his illustrations into a knitwear pattern which delivers a traditional look with a modern touch.
Nevermore

Nevermore

Nevermore is sweater pattern featuring a cool raven colourwork yoke. The name was inspired by the classic Edgar Allan Poe tale! This sweater is knitted from the top down and uses German short rows to give the back a bit of extra length for a comfy fit. Because the yoke includes several rounds with more than two colours, this pattern could be considered intermediate to advanced, but we say it's perfect if you’re ready to tackle something a bit more challenging!
