Bindweed stems, observed during a walk in a Californian spring field, inspired the design of this cropped, open-front cardigan. The muted color and gentle halo give the sweater a soft and natural look. Designed to be worn with approximately 10 cm of positive ease, Bindweed works super well with a variety of outfits from simple jeans to floral dresses, providing the comfort and coziness of a hug wherever the road takes us.
Bindweed is knit from the top down as a seamless raglan. The front sections and the back are worked in stockinette, and balloon sleeves are richly decorated with a pattern of intertwined cables and nupps. The side border of the cardigan is knit at the same time with the body and has a small cable running along a few 2x2 rib stitches. The bottom is finished with a folded stockinette hem. Both the charts and the written row-by-row instructions are provided.
One strand fingering weight and one strand of mohair are held together throughout the pattern.
My only experience of purchasing yarn through this site was good. The yarn arrived nicely packaged and was exactly the color and quality that I was expecting.
