Blaze Cardigan

Knitting
September 2016
DK (11 wpi) ?
18 stitches and 28 rows = 4 inches
in stockinette using one strand each of A and B held together
US 9 - 5.5 mm
1830 - 4026 yards (1673 - 3681 m)
34 (36 1/2, 38, 39 1/2, 42, 44 1/2, 46, 47 1/2, 50, 52 1/2, 56, 60)" [86.5 (92.5, 96.5, 100.5, 106.5, 113, 117, 120.5, 127, 133.5, 142, 152.5) cm] bust

Sizes given are finished bust circumferences. You’ll need 5 (6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 10, 11) hanks of Maai and 5 (6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 10, 11) hanks of Staccato for the different sizes; yarns are held together throughout. Sample shown in color “Brownstone”.

Yarn A = Maai
Yarn B = Staccato

Another way to knit the sleeves of a sweater at the same time as the body is to start with one cuff and work sideways across the garment to the other cuff. The fit is similar to hem-to-hem sweaters, but with more fun stitch patterning possibilities - can you imagine cables going horizontally from one size of the sweater to the other? Yum!

Most of these sweaters don’t have waist shaping, and hence rely on a fluid fabric to work well. I’ve turned the drape up to 11 here, with a mix of alpaca and silk yarns.
