Woodrup is one of 10 designs in Bespoke, a book which celebrates the magnificent bicycle with stunning knit and crochet designs in Rowan yarns. Published on 16th January, the book is available to pre-order from baa ram ewe.
The Woodrup cardigan is a top-down seamless knit, with short rows to slightly scoop the front neck and a circular yoke with colourwork elements.
Woodrup pays homage to the Leeds based cycle company who, for nearly half a century, have been synonymous with expertly made bicycle framesets.
Sizes to fit 81 (86.5, 89.5, 96, 100.5)cm / 32 (34, 35.25, 37.75, 39.5)” use 12 (13, 14, 15, 16) balls of colour A; 2 (2, 2, 3, 3) balls of colour B; 2 (2, 2, 3, 3) balls of colour C and 1 (1, 1, 2, 2) balls of colour D.
Colourwork pattern is given in chart form only.
Alas, there is an error in the yarn requirements. For all sizes you will only need 2 balls of colour B and 1 ball of colour D. Indeed, 1 ball of colour B may prove sufficient, but if you are in any doubt about your tension please don’t depend on this being the case.
