Skills RequiredMagic Loop Pick Up Stitches Sweater/Cardigan - Top Down Working in the Round
I’m a new designer Lauriane et Charlie and I need test knitters for a sweater for women. If you want to discover my work you can visit my Instagram profile @lauriane.et.charlie.
Adele is a warm jumper worked from the top down with DK and mohair yarns held together. First the front left and the front right are worked flat (back and forth) to form the V-neck.. The back is knitted flat and then joined to the front to start the work in the round. At the bottom of the jumper, the sides are split and finished with beautiful twisted ribs.
After the shoulders are seamed, the sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked down in the round. The sleeves are loose enough for a comfortable sweater and the cuffs are tightened to fit around the wrists.
Finally, the neckline is picked up and worked in the round with a few rows of twisted ribs.
