Back in November, I promised to show you the photos that Michael took of me at the beach in Ørje, wearing the Adeline’s Cardigan made for the Interweave Knits Winter 2021 issue.
I was thrilled to discover that my design – that I had knitted – was selected for the cover! The cardigan is knitted in a gorgeous shade of yellow called Tumeric in Manos del Uruguay Alegria Grande with a 4 mm/US 6 needle and a 20 stitches and 29 rows gauge measuring 10 cm/4″ square.
Adeline’s Cardigan is a stunning feast for the eyes. The generous peplum is worked sideways in three pieces. Stitches are picked up from the top of the peplum, and the back and fronts are worked separately from the bottom up. Captivating cables abound in this piece for the adventurous knitter.
The cardigan is worked in pieces and seamed for an ultimate fit. The cabled peplum of this cardigan is worked sideways in pieces for the back and each front, then stitches are picked up on the wrong side for the moss-stitch peplum. Stitches are picked up along the opposite edge of the peplum for the back and each front, which are worked from the bottom up in pieces and seamed.
The cabled cuff on the sleeve is worked sideways, then stitches are picked up along the cuff for the sleeve, which ends in pleats. In the photo above you can see the pleats.
Here is a brilliant action shot that Michael captured. My beloved scarf is a piece of silk fabric bought many years ago in Venice in Italy. I wanted to show how the cardigan looked open, as well.
Adeline’s Cardigan is graded in 8 sizes from a Small to 5XL with a bust measurement of 86.5 cm/34.5″ to 153 cm/60.25″. You might recognise the cables, as I have used them before in my Cian design. I discovered them in Norah Gaughan’s inspiring Knitted Cable Sourcebook.
The Interweave Knits Winter 2021 issue is available in a digital edition or print edition. In Norway you can buy the print issue at larger Narvesen stores or order it at your local one.
