My inspiration was to design an everyday cardigan with a touch of “sea”. This cardigan has a sailor inspired collar that is knitted as a design element using a different version of the wrap stitch. The wrap stitch pattern from the back collar continues down the front creating a decorative front panel.
Model wearing size 34.25” with 1.5” positive ease
Pattern: Both written instructions and charts.
Construction:The cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom up to the armhole. The stitches are then placed on holders and then the fronts and back pieces are worked separately.
Sleeves: ¾ length.
Sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL) with positive ease.
Finished Size: 34.25 (38.25, 42.25, 46.25, 50.25)” (8797, 107, 117.5, 127.5 cm) bust circumference
