  • This pattern is available also in my eBook, Knitting Like a Professor.

  • This cardigan is named after Nella Larsen, the fabulous author of the Harlen Renaissance.

  • Nella was inspired by dresses of the 1930s, with their swooping necklines, wide sleeves, and front ties. The Noro Kureyon yarn accentuates the lines of the piece.

  • Nella is knit in one pieces from the top-down, then the sleeves are picked up and added, again from the top down, on two circulars. Next, the entire edge of the piece is picked up and a garter-stitch trim applied. At the neckline, the garter-stitch trim is applied from the top edge, working up, decreasing and shaping. Lastly, the i-cord and applied i-cord are added, creating the tie and the neckline edging.

Sizes XS through 2XL.
