I dipped my arms in Cathrin’ s colors - the cardigan Dipped Arms is designed for the lovely yarn WalkCollection Cottage Merino!

Cathrin, thank you for your trust and the great cooperation!

The pattern provides 2 different length of the cardigan and 2 different version of color work for the sleeves.

Both cardigans are started by knitting the back from top down to the base of the armhole. The shoulder part is shaped using short rows. Then, both fronts are knitted separately from the top down to the base of the armholes, working increases for the V-neck at the same time. Back and fronts are then joined and decreases for the arm shaping as well as increases for the V-neck are worked. While knitting down to the ribbed hem, increases for a slight A-line body and short rows for a longer back are worked. For the long version pockets with optional color work are added.
Stitches for the sleeves are picked up and worked with color work of your choice in the round down to the ribbed cuffs.
For the front- and neck finishing, stitches are picked up along both fronts and along the neck, and a small neck- and front band is worked.
