The Knitter - - Cicely - Jen­nie Atkin­son

JEN­NIE ATKIN­SON

is known for her vin­tage-in­spired de­signs, and this wrap cardi­gan has a 1920s feel. The up­per body and sleeves are knit­ted in re­verse stock­ing stitch, while the lower body uses a knot­ted rib pat­tern, which em­pha­sises the shap­ing of the gar­ment; sim­ple em­broi­dery adds a pretty fin­ish­ing touch. The project is knit­ted in Erika Knight’s Bri­tish Blue 100 yarn, which is a lus­trous Blue­faced Le­ices­ter wool grown and spun in Bri­tain. It comes in eight so­phis­ti­cated colours.

PAT­TERN NOTES

Stitch count changes be­tween rows in the Knot­ted Rib pat­tern. Work par­tial re­peats in K1, P2 rib, mak­ing sure pat­tern ends with a re­peat of 3 sts be­fore any shap­ing. All stitch counts given ap­ply only af­ter WS rows (when stitch pat­tern is a mul­ti­ple of 3).
