“Backtracked” is a seamless cardigan worked from the top down using a special raglan construction, where raglan increases at the back are cleverly hidden in wide zigzag pattern bands reminiscent of tire tracks. The wide zigzag strips continue towards and over the sleeves down to the cuffs, while narrow zigzag bands mark the imagined side seams. The shawl collar is worked last from stitches picked up along the fronts and from the back neckline. Collar, hem and sleeve cuffs are worked partially in double knit, partially with a slip stitch pattern.


“Backtacked” was created in collaboration with Dye Dye Done. If you would like to try the yarn used for the sample, you can find it here.
