The pattern previews for the Spring issue of the Making zine went up on Ravelry this morning, and I am so excited to share my contribution to this beautiful publication: The Hope Cardigan.
For this cardigan, I wanted to take the theme “dots” as eyelets and use them to elevate a simple everyday cardigan into something feminine but not fussy. Knitted in Berroco Remix® Light, a soft, lightweight yarn made from 100% recycled fibers, the knitted fabric produces airy garments with a rustic texture. The columns of eyelets that begin after the sleeve cuff are paired with decreases at the edges of the knitting to create a subtle bias in the fabric.
Hope is knit in 2 pieces from sleeve cuff to center back with a dolman drop shoulder. The fit is pretty forgiving but I recommend chooses a size with at least 3″ of ease at the minimum and a maximum of 6″. Finished measurements are 36 (40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)” [91.5 (101.5, 112, 122, 132, 142, 152.5) cm] bust circumference, (buttoned). Sample shown in size 40″ [101.5 cm] with 5″ [12.75 cm] positive ease (suggested ease: 4–5″ [10-12.5cm] positive ease). To knit this cardigan you will need just 3 (3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5) skeins Remix Light in shade 6930 “Smoke”.
