CARMINE – this is one my personal favourites, it’s a yoke cardigan, knitted in the round and steeked. I’ve edged the button bands with a multi coloured crochet trim, which I feel, finishes the garment really well. The back of the steek is covered with a woven ribbon. The yarn is Rowan Felted Tweed.

The colours in Rowan Felted Tweed needed to knit ‘CARMINE’ are as follows.

SIZES S(M,L,XL,XXL)

Phantom 153 - 6(7,8,8,9) x 50gm balls (wt - 288g)
Clay 177 - 1(1,2,2,2) x 50gm ball (wt - 41g)
Gilt 160 - 1(all sizes) x 50gm ball (wt - 11g)
