When I learned to knit, 26 years ago, I wanted my knitting to be the smooth, wonderful stockinette stitch. And a few years later, when I'd learned how to purl – or knit in the round, I don't remember which came first – it did finally look that way. I still want my knitting to look that way. And if the garment has an exciting construction, I don't find knitting stockinette stitch the least boring. Creating beauty simply can't be!
My new design is another tribute to the stitch of my heart. A plain cardigan as it may look, those little details keeping the knitter – and the eye – interested are definitely there. Twisted ribbing, tubular cast ons, as well as bind offs, creating beautiful edges. Cropped length on both body and sleeves makes this perfect for layering, a way to wear wool without getting to warm. The design also offers a different approach to the set-in sleeve. All seamless, except for those tiny holes under each arm.
I find this garment extremely easy to wear, and I have been wearing it a lot already (the winter has definitely arrived, so there is an urgent need for woolen garments). I'm particularly fond of this yarn–button color combination, but the cardigan can of course be worked in a more subtle color as well, it will look great anyway.
