The Arabesque Cardigan is a top-down fitted raglan with a peplum. It is knit in one piece including the garter stitch button bands. Eyelets are emphaszing the raglan increases. The back and the wrists are adorned with intricate twisted stitch cabling motifs. The inspiration for these motifs have been the lovely decors of the Aleppo Room in the Pergamon Museum here in Berlin. So now you know where the name comes from.
22 stitches and 36 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch

I learned knitting, crochet and sewing from my mum when I was young. I kept on going from there and soon invented my own projects. From making up my own patterns to writing them down and grading them it was only a small step. And here we are. :)
