From Joji Locatelli
I designed this cardigan to use a very special set of yarns that create a color sequence where one color fades into the next one. However, La Prairie can also be knitted in a solid color. Instructions for color changes are given separately.
PRO TIP: If you don’t want to buy extra skeins for your size, you can always change the amount of colors you use.
I give you detailed instructions on how and when to fade, so instead of buying a second skein of all 5 colors, you can add a 6th color and make each color band a little bit shorter
This pattern has a different sizing than my usual, since it uses a large pattern repeat and I had limitations with different stitch counts.
There are 6 sizes, with 6” 15 cm increments around the bust. Please refer to the table of measurements to choose the perfect size for you.
Sizes are labeled 1 to 6, for bust circumferences of 30-68” 75-170 cm.
Recommended ease: 4-10” 10-25cm.
Shown in size 2 on a 36” 90 cm bust.
The yarns are hand dyed. The yarn you receive might look different than the yarn photographed.
