Although I love the look of stranded knitting, I just don’t want to knit a whole stranded sweater. Luckily, by the time I got sick of the stranded/intarsia knitting, it was time to move on to the easy st st parts.
From pattern intro:
This cardigan is named after Edgar Brandt, a master of Art Deco ironwork. Because the stranded motif is oriented vertically, a combination of stranded and intarsia knitting is used: along the side edges of the stranded panels, the main and contrast color yarns are twisted around each other to prevent holes. Since the stranded scrolls are so eye-catching, the rest of the cardigan is styled simply, with a wide, shallow neck, moderate waist shaping, slightly below-the-hip length, and 3/4-length sleeves.
The Brandt cardigan is worked in pieces from the top down; rolled neck, cuff, and bottom edges are added after seaming. On sleeves the stranded motif is worked as part of the entire sleeve; on body sides, the stranded panels are worked separately, and then sewn to front and back pieces. Front bands, including buttonholes, are worked together with fronts.
Available in 7 bust sizes from 28 3/4” to 52 3/4”.
