“The Japanese pattern that inspired Camelia is reminiscent … of pinecones. Camelia, which means evergreen in Italian, is a pretty, feminine name that perfectly matches with the pinecones that drop from evergreen trees.”
“…the center of the stitch pattern is between the pinecone repeats to balance the design, and then …. the purl ridges are carried down the sweater, adding the center part to the bottom for a pretty detail.”
“This cropped, rounded yoke cardigan is constructed in one piece from the top down. Raglan increases shape the bodice.”
