This cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom up. The sleeves are set in seamlessly, working short rows from the top-down. The slipped stitch pattern gives the garment a structured, and extremely flattering appearance for women of all shapes and sizes.

To fit bust 1(31), 2 (34), 3(36), 4(38), 5(40), 6(42), 7(44), 8(46), 9(48), 10(50) inches
Yarn and yardage: approximately 1(900), 2(950) 3(1000), 4(1050), 5(1100), 6(1150), 7(1200), 8(1250), 9(1280), 10(1300) yards of a light sportweight, heavy 4 ply, or light DK yarn that knits to gauge. Though Deco is worked on 3mm needles, I don’t recommend using a fingering-weight yarn for this pattern — the fabric should be worked quite densely to allow the slipped stitch pattern to retain definition.

You may wish to read this post in which I discuss Deco’s design and inspiration.

  1. Bonsoir.
    Un coup de foudre pour ce modèle si original, aux finitions parfaites
    Mais je n’ai jamais tricoté en anglais. Et je ne sais pas si je vais arriver à comprendre les explications.
    Existerait-il une version en français?
    merci pour tant de beauté offerte et partagée.
    Aline.
