On a Whim by Amy Herzog

Amy Herzog designs my favourite sweaters ever. And even better than that, her CustomFit software ensures the sweater pattern works for your measurements and your gauge. No more swatching to match another designer's work!

On a Whim is one such sweater. Designed and knit as a palette cleanser during the mad rush of book knitting, On a Whim is a simple, wearable knitted t-shirt design that you'll reach for over and over again.

On Amy's site, you'll see three different versions of On a Whim in three different Indigodragonfly yarns. Links to colours are included, but really you can choose any of our repeatable colours in any base you wish for this design. Don't see what you need? Email us at or book a virtual shopping session.

Only the Exact Phrase I Used Was Don't -- MCS Sock is discontinued, but Chameleon Sock is an excellent replacement

The Brain in Maine Feigns Trading Pain for Skeins in MerGoat Worsted -- a special edition colour. We recommend Spock Puppet as a slightly lighter replacement for this colour way.
