Barberry is a v-neck hoodie cardigan that features twisted stitch panels on fronts and back and twisted rib bands at the fronts, hood, cuffs and hem.
Barberry Child is a unisex design that looks great on boys or girls, and that has been designed for five sizes to fit a wide variety of children and teens, from a 2T to a twelve kid’s size. Its companion piece, Barberry Adult, adds adult shaping and fits eight sizes designed for a 28 - 58” bust.
Barberry is knit flat from the bottom up in one piece to the armholes, and then divided to work fronts and back/hood separately. The hood extends from the back neck to preserve the continuity of the cable, and is seamed at the sides of the hood. Stitches for the button band are then picked up worked around the fronts and hood.
