Subtle Lines is a knit to wear as a layering piece over t-shirts, skinny jumpers, dresses or high waisted pants and jeans. It is so named as it features an easy-to-knit and memorise subtle texture pattern that runs in vertical lines on the body and sleeves.

The sample shown is knitted in Biches & Buches Le Petit Lambswool, but you can choose to knit it in any fingering weight/4 ply yarn. The sample, knitted in size 2, used 4.5 skeins of yarn.

28 sts and 38 rows in both st st and the slip stitch pattern. The slip stitch pattern will easily block to the same gauge as st st.

It is a seamless, top down construction with a V-neck, a welted ‘seam’ that flows from the dropped shoulder down each sleeve, and it has pockets incorporated into the rib band.

Sizes and ease
It comes in 8 sizes that measure from 97 cm / 38 inches through to 132 cm / 52 inches finished bust.

As ease is a personal choice, choose the size with the amount of ease you desire. This cardigan is intended to have a relaxed fit and will fit well with positive ease anywhere between 8 cm / 3 inches and 20 cm / 8 inches.

Removable clip markers for Japanese short rows and braid
