Shim­mer

The Knitter - - Shimmer -

“MY SHIM­MER de­sign uses a series of mir­rored ca­bles to create a cardi­gan with sub­tle di­ag­o­nal lines,” says Emma Vin­ing. “Wide rib pleats fea­ture on the lower part of the gar­ment. The ca­bles are worked on the up­per sec­tions to create the shim­mer. A re­verse stock­ing stitch ridge cre­ates hor­i­zon­tal lines to em­pha­sise the ca­bles.

“The ca­ble shim­mers are made by mov­ing two stitches from each wide rib col­umn edge over the cen­tral ‘P2’ of the rib to the next col­umn. This re­order­ing of the stitches links the columns and cre­ates the shim­mer. Two ca­ble nee­dles are used for the stitch move­ment.”
