Beyond the Wild Wood
Beyond the Wild Wood is a wrap yourself in comfort cardigan to live in.
It’s another Ziggurat and like all Ziggurats is knitted:
- in one piece
- shoulders, sleeve caps, and frontbands knitted in one sweep
- built-in slanted pockets
- set-in sleeves are knitted in the round
- optional bust darts (four sizes from Smallish to Wowza!)
- collar can be worn up or down
- photo tutorial for the pocket
The pockets are knitted in similar fashion to those on Messing About in Boats, but are slanted and quite on the sly.
A fisherman’s rib collar, hem, and arched cuff add interesting texture and structure.
The flaring rib collar is knitted on last, as are the last few rows of pocket lining.
Not a seam in sight. Honest.
Number of skeins: 7 (7, 7, 8, 8) 9, 9, 9, 10, 10
1190 (1260, 1330, 1410, 1490) 1570, 1640, 1710, 1790, 1850 m
1300 (1380, 1460, 1550, 1640) 1720, 1810, 1870, 1960, 2030 yds
Note: The sample in size 38 was knitted with exactly 7 skeins – buy an extra skein as suggested to be safe. Alternatively, make the cardigan a little shorter.
