|Wych Elm Cardigan by Emma Vining|
My Wych Elm cardigan design captures the moment just before new leaves burst from their buds. A single twisted stitch travels across a reverse stocking stitch background creating the impression of a drawing within the knitting. Combining this stitch pattern with a wide rib forms flattering long lines. The cast on edges are worked in garter stitch with the buds and stems emerging from this border. The front of the cardigan has a rib band that is knitted at the same time as the fronts. The bud and stem motifs are also worked at the sleeve cuffs.
I hope you have enjoyed reading about the patterns in my Deramores Designer Shop and the inspiration behind each of them. Thank you for subscribing to my blog posts and happy knitting!
