ENGLISH > Reflecting on the learnings of her 10-year tenure at Brain Pickings, writer and philosopher, Maria Konnikova, urged us to ‘build pockets of stillness” in our lives at all costs: to find the time to do very little and feel embraced by the quiet observation of our own thoughts. “There is a creative purpose to daydreaming, even to boredom”. The idea came to me as a respite of the many complexities of life and it inspired me to design a collection of garments that were both embracing and liberating.

For this garment, the pocket of stillness became quite a literal pocket: one single hidden secret-keeper, holder of all things pretty.

The Stanley is a long comfy cardigan named after my favorite Knitwear ‘mestra’, Montse Stanley. It will look better in solid colors, that showcase the simplicity of the pattern repeat.

It is knit top-down with raglan stockinette stitch sleeves and it features a meditative tumbling blocks pattern and a single pocket. The v-neck ribbed band is first worked at the neck and sts are picked alongside one of its edges and worked down to the hem.

The pattern includes charts for all sizes and a row-by-row tracker for working the raglan increases.

CASTELLANO >
The Stanley es un cárdigan largo y cómodo que lleva el nombre de mi “maestra” favorita, Montse Stanley. Quedará mucho mejor en colores sólidos, que permiten apreciar el dibujo, simple y geométrico del patrón. Está tejido de arriba hacia abajo con mangas raglán de punto jersey y un motivo de bloques que es tan agradable de tejer como elegante. Lleva un sólo bolsillo, pero puedes añadirle otro fácilmente, replicando las instrucciones en el otro delantero. La tira de botones del escote en pico se teje de arriba hacia abajo junto con el resto de la prenda, al estilo clásico de los cardigans de origen escandinavo. Primero se teje la banda de botones sobre un montado provisional y al terminar de conseguir el largo necesario, se recogen puntos a lo largo de esta tira para construir el raglán.

El patrón incluye gráficos para todas las tallas e instrucciones vuelta a vuelta para trabajar los aumentos de raglán.
