Basic Skills Necessary:

  • long-tail CO
  • Inc/ dec
  • short rows
  • BO
  • Pick up stitches
  • join seams

Pattern Description:

Designed to be a classic cardigan with a modern shape, pour moi begins with one of my favorite pattern stitches, seeded rib, for the hem, adds in a graduated hem that begins in back and moves all the way to the front band and an A-line shape so that the sweater is fuller at the hip but more fitted at the bust, then finishes with the same front band as the hem. My tech editor described pour moi as, "an attractive modern sweater that is easy to knit and wearable anytime, anywhere and any season." Since I designed it for myself, I couldn't agree with her more!

One note about MADELINETOSH Sport: While it is listed as a sport weight yarn, to me, it is a traditional DK weight. It may be difficult to get gauge with a sport weight, so you may want to look at lighter DK yarns, if substituting yarn.

Gauge:

22 sts and 30 rows = 4"/ 10cm in St st. Take time to check gauge.
