The Viviana Cardigan is a relaxed elegant, yet sporty cardigan that is knit from the top-down in seamless construction. The method used for this pullover is a mix between SusieM’s contiguous and Barbara Walker’s simultaneously knit top-down set-in sleeves. While in Germany, I heard this shoulder shaping referred to as “Französische Schultern” (translated: French Shoulders). In English, they are called “Full Fashioned Shoulders”.

All that I can tell you is that these shoulders and sleeves have a perfect fit that I love!

In 2013, I conducted a Mystery KAL for a similar cardigan, but the shoulder construction is revised and improved. In addition to beautifully fitting shoulders and sleeves, this cardigan has several decorative features. The first one is the Estonian Braid (also known as Vikkel Braid). The second one is an absolutely beautiful and super easy to knit twisted stitch pattern (no cable needle needed) on the front pockets and waist shaping detail. The cardigan’s collar can be knit as a simple button band (as shown above) or as a shawl-type shaped collar (see photo below).

This pattern includes step-by-step photo tutorials for the shoulder construction and for the twisted stitches.

Die Methode, die wir für den Viviana Cardigan ist meine Revision und Mischung zwischen SusieMs contiguous- und Barbara Walkers gleichzeitig gestrickten eingesetzten Ärmeln-Methode. Manche nennen die Schulterkonstruktion Französische Schultern.

Die Jacke verfügt über ein hübsches Stichmuster, das einfach zu stricken ist und eine V-förmige Halsformung. Man kann die Jacke vorne knöpfen. Außerdem enthält das Muster optional gestrickte Taschen. Es ist eine leger elegante Strickjacke.
