Pattern Information

Quoted from the magazine “The careful detail and craftsmanship of Bali artisans were a reference point for Leigh Radford in her design for this jewel-patterned cardigan. Starting with a palette from Indonesia and inspiration from Paula Jenne’s sweater (Interweave Knits, Fall 2002, page 8). Leigh let her imagination and inventiveness guide her central idea -- an elegant cardigan with the look and feel of a treasure-chest tapestry. She experimented with the scale of the diamonds and the sequence of the colors in the slip-stitch rows until she felt she’d found the perfect combinations. To add more rich drama to her fabric without complicating the knitting process, she used duplicate-stitch embroidery to embellish the diamond motifs. She even custom crafted buttoms with two kinds of beads slipped onto an earring post.”
