A cosy cardigan that helps to show off your curves with braids and cables that integrate the shaping. It's length and the vertical cabling have an overall lenghtening and figure friendly effect. The bust increases are worked mainly in the front pieces of the cardigan to improve the fit even more. There are also instructions for optional bust darts included.
The Gardening Cardigan is worked bottom-up in one piece featuring set-in short row sleeves that are knit in the round. The front braids wind around the neck to meet in the back and form a nice collar. In this pattern the cables and braids are charted.
20 sts x 30 rows = 10 x 10cm/4 x 4? 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. :)
