This gorgeous cardigan pattern was designed by Pam Allen of Quince & Co for Loop London’s 10th anniversary book ‘10’.
Available through Loop, London (loopknitting.com) or your local LYS.
In the States the book is distributed through Deep South Fibers, while stock lasts, after that and for the rest of the world, through Loop, London.

‘Loop’s 10’ has 12 patterns celebrating 10 fabulous years of Loop,London. All patterns are written and charted. Each printed book comes with a download code.
Note: ‘London Rose’ is a beautiful bespoke color for Loop,London.

Everyone needs the cosy hug of a classic swingy cardigan. Double increases for the raglan create slanted rows of pretty eyelets, leaving the rest of Silene to be easy comfort knitting with a delicious squish of garter stitch to frame the shape. Quince & Co.’s custom colour takes just as much floral inspiration as the cardigans name, calling to mind the wild flowers that Pam sees blooming just outside her window and closer to home, the amazing displays at Chelsea Flower Show in London.
