Knitting Pattern Preview - A Sideways Cardigan AND Cowl Set!

Here's a new take on the "twin set"!Kimono_Slv_CardiCowl3_350   A coordinated cardigan and infinity scarf/cowl! 

These are just off of my needles and will be written up in the next month.

The chocolate brown color of Knitpicks HW Gloss yarn has been enticing me to come up with something yummy to knit and wear.  Well, here it is!

The silk content of the yarn even had my husband exclaiming (more than one idle comment!) how beautiful and striking the yarn and pattern are!  He he.

This cardigan is knit from the centers out, sideways!  Attached kimono sleeves extend naturally from the body.  Ribbed waistband, cuffs, front bands, and collar are picked up and knit afterwards.

Ah - yes, I deviated from my usual top-down, seamless habit, but this one was worth it to me!  I love how the unique cable and lace stitch pattern looks running sideways and down along the sleeves.

AND then, I was so in love with the finished cardigan, that I decidedKimono_Slv_Cardigan_350 to make a coordinating infinity scarf/cowl with the yarn I still had!  I am thrilled with how it looks together.  Very chic and modern.  And versatile!  Wear the cowl on it's own and make it first so you can test out the stitch pattern and yarn.

I'll be writing this one up very soon!




This is absolutely beautiful, I can't wait until you write it up!

Every new pattern you create is my next new favorite! I can't wait to knit this sweater - this design is exactly the combination of style elements and the yarn texture/weight I've been looking for. Thank you so much for all your hard work and knitting-talenty goodness!
