PATTERN DETAILS

With front and back pieces shaped to fit a woman's figure, this high waisted feminine cardigan makes a great addition to any wardrobe. Knit it in a smooth wool for a more refined style, or a tweedy yarn for a more relaxed feel. The plaited cables wrap over the shoulders and the shoulder seams are moved to the back instead of on top of the shoulders. Gauge: 22 stitches & 34 rows in 4 inches (10cm) square in stockinette stitch after blocking using larger needle. Finished Measurements: Bust sizes 32 [36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56] inches (81.5 [91.5, 101.5, 112, 122, 132, 142]cm). For specific measurements, see schematic Yarn Requirements: 1025 [1150, 1275, 1400, 1550, 1675, 1800] yards of DK weight yarn. Needle Size: 3.5mm (US 4) 24-36 inch circular for ribbing and bands, and 3.75mm (US 5) 24-30 inch circular needle for body or size needed to obtain gauge Pattern Includes: charts and text translations of charts Stitches Used: knit, purl, k2tog, yo, ssk, knit front & back, c3 over 3 right, c3 over 3 left, wrap & turn short rows, m1. Other Details: This sweater is knit in pieces from the bottom up and seamed together. The front bands and collar are knitted on as one piece after the rest of the sweater is sewn together. This sweater is meant to be worn with 1-2 inches (2.5-5cm) of positive ease. The narrowest point of the sweater will hit a high waist. From the hem to the waist, all shaping is done on the back piece, while all shaping above the high waist is done on the fronts of the cardigan. This will give the sweater fullness where it's needed (on the back near the hemline and on the front at the bust).

I started sewing when I was a toddler on one of those drilled out boards where you use a shoelace and sew the outline of a fish or a duck. Once I could wield scissors I started sewing dresses for my dolls. I added crochet when I was 8, cross stitching when I was 10, beading at 11, and knitting at 16. And I started binding books in college.
