This cardigan plays with the multicolour of the half fisherman’s rib. Only one colour is knitted per row. Start with the back yoke. Then the front yoke is knitted in the main color and with short rows to go into the color pattern. The sleeves are knitted in a lacemaking pattern, which creates a nice contrast to the severity of the colour pattern.
