I have a colour addiction. I love putting different shades together, but have always had this idea of a slightly oversize, but still flattering, open cardigan with big blocks of colour. Arciform was the result! Combining short rows and slipped stitches, the colour panels curve around you. Knitted in a bulky yarn and US 11 (8mm) needles it is a surprisingly quick and satisfying knit. With the option to mix and match colours, and the choice of seven sizes (XS – 3X) and three lengths (short, medium, long), you’re sure to find your perfect combination!
