Riverside is a seamless design worked in rows from the top down. The raglan lines are purled and run along the sides, which
creates a very flattering fit. The cardigan is not too long which makes it perfect to wear with high-waisted pants and skirts. The
reverse side of this cardigan looks pretty nice too. It can be decided after finishing Riverside which side to use. That is one of the
reasons why the button bands are made separately and then sewn on. Do not let these two seams scare you; they make the fronts
of the jacket a lot more stable and beautiful and are easy to do. The cardigan is designed with about 8 to 10 inches of positive
ease. The model wears the jacket with 10” positive ease. The purled side stripes have the effect of pulling the fabric in, which is very flattering.

I hope you enjoy making and wearing Riverside Cardigan.

Riverside wird nahtlos von oben nach unten in Reihen gestrickt. Die links gestrickten Raglanlinien laufen unter den Armen an den Seiten der Vorderteile und des Rückenteils weiter. Dieses Detail sorgt für eine tolle Passform, denn die linksgestrickten “Nähte” halten die Weite der Jacke ein wenig ein. Die Jacke passt gut zu Röcken und Hosen mit hoher Taille, denn sie ist nicht zu lang. Riverside sieht richtig toll aus, wenn man sie ungefähr 20 cm bis 25 cm größer strickt als der eigene Brustumfang. Das Modell trägt die Jacke mit 25 cm Extraweite. Die Knopfleisten werden separat gearbeitet und dann angenäht. So kann man sich auch die Option freihalten, die Jacke andersherum zu tragen.
