After 2 patterns for babies and kids, here’s one for us :-)
Right after I finished the Roseline cardigan, I thought well maybe I could wear one too.. Then friends started to comment how they’d like one for themselves too.
It just so happened that I stumbled upon this bag of Knit Picks “wool of the Andes” stashed for years, waiting for the right project. Looked just perfect !
And thus, a month or so later, this piece emerged. With a high Empire waist, lacy skirt, delicate picots edging, and long sleeves with lacy flared cuffs. I’m in love. And the heathered colors of this yarn are so soft, contrasting with the lime single I used for the edgings (Gedifra Fashion trend Fino, apparently now discontinued).
This pattern is explained in 5 sizes from XS to XL. Pattern is richly illustrated with many step by step photos.
– Knit Picks “Wool of the Andes”: 9 (10, 12, 13, 14) skeins in Amethyst Heather and 1 skein of similar weight yarn in a contrasting color
– 5.5 mm (H) hook (or size needed to achieve gauge)
– 5 buttons – approx 1,5 cm / ¾ in diameter
Sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL) – Bust: 71/76 (81/86, 91/96, 101/106, 111/116) cm – 28/30 (32/34, 36/38, 40/42, 44/46) inches
Finished bust dimensions of cardigan: 72 (82, 92, 103, 112) cm – 28 1⁄4 (32 1⁄4, 36 1⁄4, 40 1⁄2, 44) inches. Cardigan is meant to be worn with negative ease.
Gauge: 16 sts and 8 rows = 10 cm/4″ over double crochet in front loop (dcfl)
Note: gauge should be measured over slightly stretched fabric, to mimic worn garment.
Once again, thanks to my team of super testers for their helpful feedback. Care to see what theirs look like ? :-)
