“Anthro” is an elegant cardigan worked from the top down completely seamless. Its timeless design was inspired by the beauty of Anthropologie sweaters and features set-in sleeves with a cable detail, double-knit cuffs and hem in a contrasting color and a button band with rhythmic button sequence.
Fitting is achieved through a cleverly placed cable motif in the back, completely eliminating the need for waist shaping, while short row shaping is used for the back neckline and the shoulder slopes. Bust darts are optional for those who prefer the comfortable fit of additional ease in the chest area.
Worked in a delicate, extra light and airy yarn like the one used for the sample cardigan, this garment will make a pleasant addition to your summer outfits, or use a slightly more substantial material to create a warmer jacket. Whatever your fiber choices will be – solids, light heathers and demi-solids will work best to show off the cables, and matching the hidden contrasting color of cuffs and hem to existing wardrobe pieces will show your great sense of style!
Gauge:24 sts and 32 rows per 4” (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch with larger needles after blocking.
