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.”

I will be running KAL’s with Refined Knits patterns in the Wood House Knits group! Post here if you are interested.

Errata:

Page 102
The length in the sentence below is wrong, the book says 2.5 inches less then desired length, it should 3.5 inches as below:

Remove dart m and work evenly until piece measures 7 (7½, 7½, 7½, 8¼, 8¼, 8¼, 8¼)” (18 19, 19, 19, 21, 21, 21, 21 cm) or 3½” (8.9) cm) less than the desired length from armhole, ending with a WS row.

The buttonband and buttonhole band are reversed in the following Set Up Row at the bottom of page 102. The buttonhole band should be first as follows:

SET-UP ROW: (WS) Removing Lace Band m as you go, work buttonhole band in established patt, sl m, p1, k1 to 1 st before buttonband m and dec 1 st where necessary to maintain the center st of the Lace Band as a knit st, k1 sl m, work buttonhole band in established patt.

Ignore the second Set Up Row at the top of page 103.

Dividing the Body:
Removing raglan m as you go, work to raglan m, place next 41 (41, 45, 51, 55, 59, 63, 67) sts on a holder or waste yarn for the left sleeve, CO 15 (19, 23, 23, 28, 32, 34, 38) sts, work 73 (77, 81, 87, 91, 95, 99, 103) back sts, place next 41 (41, 45, 51, 55, 59, 63, 67) sts on a holder or waste yarn for right sleeve, CO 15 (19, 23, 23, 28, 32, 34, 38) sts, work to end—184 (200, 216, 226, 244, 260, 272, 288) sts.
