It is easy to find beautiful knitted cardigans with descriptions on the Internet, but what if the model you like exists only in the photo? Of course, it is worth trying your hand! Let's make our own description of an elegant sand cardigan and knit it together. First of all, please note that the edge and the edge of the sleeve of the product are decorated with boucle yarn imitating fur. This thread is produced by the Turkish manufacturer Yarn Art in the Davos series. To achieve maximum color matching, we will also knit the model itself from the yarn of this factory, the half-woolen thread "Charisma".
From successful combinations, you can opt for shades of caramel and fuchsia, or give preference to lighter tones.
For work we need:
- circular needles No. 4 and No. 8;
- Charisma yarn - at least 7 skeins;
- Davos yarn - 5 skeins.
Knitted cardigans - getting started
As in any other case, first we knit a sample for the correct calculation of the loops. It is enough to knit 20 loops for 10 rows, this will give a complete picture of the density of the finished product. You can do it with the rubber band that is morelove it and make our knitted cardigans totally personal.
Back of product
On circular needles we collect the number of loops that corresponds to the width of the canvas from wrist to wrist. Keep in mind that when worn, the elastic band will stretch slightly, so you should focus not on the standard 140 cm, but a slightly smaller size. We knit an elastic band 20 cm high, after which we begin to gradually narrow the “bat” sleeve. When the width of the backrest corresponds to our size, we stop decreasing the loops and knit a straight fabric of the required length.
It should be borne in mind that knitted cardigans with sleeves of this style are suitable for almost any figure, but the depth of the sleeve should be selected individually. In some cases, you can not narrow the model at all, then the back and front will be rectangles.
The front of our cardigan is also knitted from the shoulder, but with a rounded border design. We evenly close the loops until the length of the front and back is equal. We connect the finished parts of the product with a chain stitch.
Now the most difficult and interesting part of the work begins. The "highlight" that distinguishes our knitted cardigans is the looped mohair binding along the edge of the model. Yarn "Davos" is very voluminous and requires a special attitude. We start finishing with cuffs, which is technically easier. The work is done with knitting needles No. 8, we collect the loops from the hem through one. Sufficient width will be 6-7 cmknitting, otherwise the cuff will become too heavy and deform the sleeve.
It is better to start tying the contour of the product from the beginning of the collar, this will make it a little wider without breaking the working thread. Tie the ends of the different skeins of yarn carefully so as not to break the loops of yarn. When closing the last row of the strapping, adjust it slightly so that the edge is not stretched.
Use a decorative button or tatting cord as a fastener.
Yarn Art yarn will make beautiful crocheted cardigans. It can be not only a woolen thread, but also a thinner acrylic, cotton or even melange thread for those who like to experiment. I wish you bold creative decisions!
