Alina cardigan designed for YOTH yarns is live! I would like to thank you for all amazing words you’ve sent, I am so touched by your support and happy you like the pattern. I would also love to thank YOTH yarns for this collaboration. It was a true joy to knit with Father, this yarn is so easy to work with and it gives this perfect crisp stitch definition that makes the cables really stand out. I am also quiet in love with how YOTH team styled the cardigan for this beautiful photoshoot that I am happy to share with you here.
Alina is a top down seamless cardigan featuring the compound raglan shaping for a better fit around the shoulders. The beginning of a cardigan is just a breeze – good old stockinette stitch in worsted weight yarn – you’ll be done with yoke pretty fast. And then the fun part begins – cable sections placed in staircase order gradually meet in the center of the back. The same sequence in featured in the front.
The cable is mirrored on the sleeves, starting slightly lower than the elbow level and finishing with the i-cord trim for a clean look.
After you are done with the body, the stitches are picked up for a simple 1×1 rib shawl collar shaped with short rows to create generous volume around the neck. The hem and the side bands meet in slightly rounded corners. The edge is also trimmed with the i-cord.
Top down construction allows you to control the length completely to your taste – the pattern gives tips on how you can adjust the length without losing the pattern flow.
