Knitting and Gin Cardigan Yarn Bundle
- 2 skeins- £66.00 - 3 in Stock
- 3 skeins- £90.00 - 3 in Stock
We have a limited number of yarn bundles for Sue Stratford's new pattern, the Knitting and Gin Cardigan.
The Knitting and Gin cardigan is a cropped cardigan designed to be close fitting. The cardigan is worked from the bottom up. The Gin bottle and glass are worked from charts using the stranded and Intarsia techniques. The body is worked up to the armholes, followed by the two sleeves up to the armhole. The stitches for the sleeves and body are then joined and the yoke is worked with raglan shaping and a cable design. Short rows are worked at the back of the neck to ensure a good fit. Embroidery is added to the Gin bottle and the glass to add detail.
The main cardigan is knitted in Sonsie which is custom spun for Skein Queen, and is a bouncy, woollen, non-superwash yarn which blooms slightly when washed. The black and yellow details are in Crush DK.
