This gorgeous cardigan pattern was designed by Juju Vail 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: ‘Turbillion’ is a beautiful bespoke color for Loop, London.

Sprinkle originally featured as a baby cardigan in our book ‘Juju’s Loops’ and though it still includes the same elements, this adult size
has been updated with elegant grown-up details. Juju has adapted
the shape for a more flattering style, included short rows in the yoke for a comfortable fit, and optional pockets that are concealed within the stitch pattern. The Uncommon Thread’s Lush Worsted provides a luxury base for rich semi-solids and unique speckled skeins, which now includes ‘Turbillion’ - inspired by celebration and stars with a varying flight that creates a spiralling glitter effect.

SIZES
1 (2, 3)
Finished bust: 91 (102.5, 121)cm / 35¾ (40¼, 47½)in – to be
worn with at least 2.5-7.5cm / 1-3in positive ease
Model has 86cm (34in) chest and is wearing size 1 of the long version with pockets.
Important note on finished lengths: The length down centre back is calculated when laid flat after finishing – the nature of the chevron stitch pattern means that the length will relax and grow by up to an additional 7.5cm (3in) with wear.

4.5mm (UK 7 / US 7) DPNs for pockets and sleeves
Locking stitch markers
Stitch markers
Stitch holders or smooth waste yarn

Tapestry needle

TENSION
18 sts and 36 rows to 10cm (4in) over garter stitch after
blocking.
26 sts and 28 rows to 10cm (4in) over chevron stitch worked flat after blocking. Note re. Chevron Stitch pattern:
Owing to the nature of the stitch pattern, you will find with wear that the tension in the lower half of the body section relaxes to approximately 22 sts to 10cm (4in).
Take time to check your tension worked both flat and in the round for the sleeves, and adjust the needle size accordingly to ensure an accurate finish.

PATTERN NOTES
• Sprinkle uses the standard ‘wrap and turn’ method for short rows, but this can be substituted for the German Short Row method if preferred.
