BOMBUS cardigan

My idea was to create a very modern piece: a vintage take on a classic bomber jacket with a fashionable texture and lovely colour details. To knit this piece is exiting! I found a way to include all increases into the clusters and cables at the very beginning.

The cardigan suits so many body shapes and does look feminin and brand new. The border is knitted double and gives a perfect stability but remains elastic.

Three colours are incorporated into the border and do come as little surprises.The typical bulky back is created by short rowing. You can order all yarn

including all charming colours for the lovely colour details as a KIT in 3 different main colours. The amount of yarn will match the different sizes.

I suggest to use the yarn of the pattern, the welthase tweed DK since it offers so much volume, it ́s big and bouncy and very reliable. The „bubbles“ of the bubble stitch pattern, do pop out perfectly with this yarn. 

The pattern was released in 20th issue of the London based POMPOM magazine (photos: Nicole Mlakar).
