A Bit of Funk

Piquant

This long cardigan was requested by my mother. She told me she was done being normal and from now on she was going to wear clothes that didn’t even try to be normal. I tried to satiate her appetite for weirdness (she does have a denim, lace, and leopard-print skirt she wears regularly) while designing something that won't embarrass my kids.

Long and lacy, this sweater has a peaked collar supported at the back of the neck by corrugated rib. The sleeves are started from the cuffs, and the back and fronts are worked separately from the bottom-up. Short rows shape the points at the hem of each front. Twin cables at the back pinch in during waist shaping, creating an hourglass effect.

To keep it light, I used a smaller weight yarn than I normally would with US #10/6mm needles: a handspun double-ply yarn that used a woolen preparation (undyed drum carded batts) and a worsted draw to maintain smoothness.

PATTERN NOTES

[Knitty's list of standard abbreviations and techniques can be found here.]

IMPORTANT: Please read through the entire pattern before beginning this project.

As this sweater is very long, I strongly recommend weighting your gauge swatch and making any changes necessary to the number of rows worked throughout in order for it to properly fit the wearer without sagging or slumping.

Since the pocket is worked first, it makes an excellent gauge swatch.

Abbreviations:

C6F: Slip next 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front, k3; k3 from cable needle.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

designername Tara Daun is a fiber-obsessed environmentalist. She maintains her sanity while caring for two toddlers (and husband) by taking care of 6 sheep, 2 alpaca, and an angora rabbit and then processing all of their fiber by hand and turning it into yarn, finished knits, felt, and garden mulch. Tara started spinning her own yarn as an attempt to slow down her pace of finishing projects and thereby reducing her need to buy so much yarn. Someone maybe should have warned her that paying for the farm ends up being more expensive than a few trips to the local yarn shop.

To see pictures of her animals and updates on current projects, you can find her farm on Facebook or buy her yarns and finished projects at the Etsy shop. She's on Ravelry, too.
