Notes: Ardent is a striking yet simple introduction to intarsia colourwork and features a double-neck, ruffled short sleeves on a drop shoulder, and folded hems. The top is worked flat, beginning at the front hem and worked up to the shoulders, then down to the back hem. Stitches are then picked up around the armhole for the ruffled sleeve. The front is vertically colourblocked in - neck, ruffled short sleeves on a drop shoulder, and folded hems.
The top is worked flat, beginning at the front hem and worked up to the shoulders, then down to the back hem. Stitches are then picked up around the armhole for the ruffled sleeve. The front is vertically colourblocked in 2 colours, while the back features thick stripes that border a semicircle worked in a third contrasting colour, reminiscent of a deconstructed sunburst. The fit is boxy with extra ease and a lowered back hem, with split sides for movement.
