YOTH Cardigan

YOTH Cardigan

Textured Cardigan

This week one more cardigan flew off my needles – the project for YOTH yarns that I started this Fall is over and I am a little bit sad to let it go… It was a pure joy to work with Father in Hazelnut, this yarn has such an amazing stitch definition and it knits like butter!

YOTH cardigan is a top down cardigan with the yoke shaped as a compound raglan to ensure the perfect fit. It’s “framed” with a classic 1×1 rib neckband with a collar shaped with the help of short rows. The border is finished with an i-cord bind off.

It has a very “clean” and refined look, just like YOTH yarns company whose aesthetics I tried to reflect in this knitwear piece. And, of course, I couldn’t not add some texture to it. I played around with the stitch that has been one my “to-knit” list forever, changed it a little bit and was very happy with the result. It reminds me, for some reason, of the palm leaf…

I also love the wrong side of the cardigan – it has a completely different look, but also creates a very interesting texture effect! What I am also really pleased with is that this stitch is very stretchy, which will ensure that the body of the cardigan fits you perfectly even if your gauge was a little bit off.

Father is very quick to knit with! I would definitely recommend it to beginners as it’s very easy to create neat and crisp stitches in this yarn.

One more little detail that I love so much is a slightly curved edges of the border that create beautiful smooth lines.

The cardigan will fly to YOTH yarns soon, and though I am a little bit sad to let it go, I am really excited to see how YOTH team will style it – so looking forward to their photoshoot! I am sure they will do a great job, I really love how they present their yarns and knitwear. The pattern will be available through YOTH Ravelry store in winter 2017. You can follow YOTH yarns on Instagram @yarnonthehouse to keep up with all the updates.

    How exciting! Can’t wait to see more of this beauty! I had the pleasure of meeting the YOTH team at a pop-up shop in Maryland a few summer ago. Wonderful people and gorgeous yarns.
