Product Details

Mixing embroidery with knitting can produce striking results, and this elegant jacket-style cardigan uses the technique to great effect. Description: This seamless sweater features distinctive trim using a decorative blanket stitch (instructions provided). It has a bit of the flair of the classic Chanel-style jacket. The lower hem is done in garter stitch, turned up and stitched in a contrasting color, and the sleeve cuffs are edged in the same way. Blanket stitch is also applied to the collar and armhole seams. The body of the sweater features simple stockinette stitch with purl ridges for textural interest. Construction: The sweater is knitted in one piece from the bottom up, then separated at the armholes for the fronts and back to be worked separately. Sleeves are picked up around the armhole and worked downward in the round. It has gentle waist shaping. Instructions are included for the simple blanket stitch embroidery trim. Pattern has been professionally tech-edited.
