“Ruby is an elegant fitted cardigan with a pattern of flashing gemstones linked by curving lines of eyelets,” says Emma Vining. “The ‘rubies’ are made with extended lines of twisted stitches with a large eyelet centre, with long lines of eyelets separating each set of rubies. The eyelet pattern extends from the cast-on edge to the shoulders and neckline. Each sleeve has a pair of ruby motifs at the cuff, too.” Emma’s cardigan is knitted in West Yorkshire Spinners Illustrious DK, a gorgeous blend of Falkland wool and British alpaca that offers both softness and good stitch definition
