(6) Name: 'Knitting : Paprika

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cable

Pattern Description:

Paprika is a part of my "Spice Girls" series of cardigans designed for everyday wear, and as a part of the spice collection, Paprika brings a little unique spice all of its own.

This vest features some simple cables that look intricate but very easy to execute, hood, and interesting closures.

"Paprika" is completely seamless; it is knit from top down and requires very minimal finishing.

I have used an amazing technique developed by Susie Myers, "contiguous set-in sleeves", that allows shoulder shaping and creating set-in sleeves without using short rows. Sleeves are worked at the same time as the rest of the vest.
Paprika is worked flat apart from 2 rows to finish the sleeves.


20 sts and 26 rows = 10 cm/4 inches in stockinette stitch with larger needles.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 6m-14 years; To fit: 17"-30" chest


  • 3.5 mm/US #4 circular needles (30 or 40 cm, 100 cm);
  • 3.5 mm/US #4 double pointed needles (optional);
  • 4 mm/US #6 circular needles (30 or 40 cm, 60 or 80 cm) or size to obtain gauge;
  • 4 movable stitch markers to mark shoulder/sleeve areas;
  • Cable needle;
  • Tapestry needle;
  • 2-3 sets of buttons (clasp, frog, or regular buttons);
  • Waste yarn/stitch holders.

You Will Also Need:

  • 310-1100 yds of DK weight yarn

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Colour Adventures
