The design of the A I R cardigan is modern and minimalistic.
Simple and clear do the lines of the Brioche pattern marry up with the light and airy welthase yak lace and kidsilk yarn.
Here shape and pattern create an elegant, airy appearance.
Knitted two stranded with the beautiful welthase yak lace and welthase kidsilk, the cardigan is light as a feather: it weights less than 400g.
The A I R cardigan is knitted double stranded seamlessly top down in Brioche (or Fishermans Rib) Pattern.
A I R starts with a provisional cast on for the collar at the center of the back and will be worked in two directions until stitches are picked up for the fronts and back and will join the
collar stitches. The collar is contingiously worked together with the fronts in Brioche Pattern. Once you`ve finished the entire body, it will be folded to the inside and sewed on.
Front and back are worked seperately to final armhole lenght and then joined and worked in one piece in Brioche Pattern until it`s time for the ribbing. Sleeve stitches are picked up from the arm hole and knitted down to the ribbing.
Photos to illustrate the sewing, picking up and pulling are attached.
The pattern is suitable for not so experienced knitters who have experience in knitting Brioche and do like to pay attention to details acc. to hemming.
