Antoinette

BY ELA TORRENTE

Figure-flattering and delightfully feminine, Antoinette is a cropped, seamless little cardigan worked (mostly) flat from the top down. The design features peplum shaping, short raglan sleeves, and an easy and fun twisted cable motif (no cable needle required) for the yoke. The edges are worked simultaneously in broken rib, and the button bands are picked up and bound off with i-cords.  Offered in sizes XS-3XL, this design is intended to be worn with zero or little negative ease at the chest and frilled on the waist.

Sample shown was worked at a very loose gauge in a fingering weight merino/cashmere blend, and we believe our elann 50% Superwash Merino/50% Silk Undyed DK weight yarn would add the perfect balance of substance and drape to this design.
