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.
Paprika features some simple cables that look intricate but are very easy to execute, a hood, and interesting closures. It is completely seamless; it is knit from top down and requires very minimal finishing. Paprika is worked flat apart from 2 rows to finish the sleeves.
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.
Written instructions are very detailed (32 pages!), and are broken into a few size groups. Please read the pattern, and to save ink and paper print only what you need for your size.
Yarn: Suitable for DK weight yarns.
Gauge: 20st and 26 rows = 10cm/4" in stockinette stitch on 4mm needles or size required.
