My new cardigan is now available to buy. However it has a name change and will now be called ‘Trilo’. I realised when I went to Ravelry that there were far too many Ripleys and no one would ever find it!
If the standard construction of sweaters has left you bored, here is a cardigan with a difference! The back and sleeves are knit first, then the front and yoke are picked up and knit as one piece. This creates a cozy cardigan with a horizontal lace rib that flows seamlessly and leaves you with very little finishing work. A luxurious shawl collar gives it the perfect finish.
To fit actual bust circumference up to: 30 [33, 35, 37, 39, 41, 43, 47, 50] inches
3 inches of positive ease are recommended.
Navy version modelled with 3 inches postive ease, pink and green version modelled with 1 inch postive ease.
When I started this cardigan I wanted to figure out if I could knit the front panels and the yoke of a cardigan together. It worked really well, the back and sleeves are knit first. The you work the front and the yoke decreasing along raglan seams.
It fits well, is fun to knit and looks good on. What more could you ask for in a cardigan!
