CARMINE – this is one my personal favourites, it’s a yoke cardigan, knitted in the round and steeked. I’ve edged the button bands with a multi coloured crochet trim, which I feel, finishes the garment really well. The back of the steek is covered with a woven ribbon. The yarn is Rowan Felted Tweed.
The colours in Rowan Felted Tweed needed to knit ‘CARMINE’ are as follows.
Phantom 153 - 6(7,8,8,9) x 50gm balls Clay 177 - 1(1,2,2,2) x 50gm ball Gilt 160 - 1(all sizes) x 50gm ball Avocado 161- 1(all sizes) x 50gm ball Peony 183 - 1(all sizes) x 50gm ball Rage 150 - 1(all sizes) x 50gm ball Tawny 186 - 1(all sizes) x 50gm ball Ginger 154 - 1(all sizes) x 50gm ball Cinnamon 175 - 1(all sizes) x 50gm ball
