Naomi's Newest Cardigan

Naomi's  Open Front Cardigan
Naomi made this stylish open front cardigan using  knit technique 115 (plain fair isle) for the front & back and stitch pattern 1127 with knit technique 137 (double bed tuck) for the sleeves.

She drew the shapes on Journal 6 as  downloadable charts so that she would have custom knitting instructions at the console.

Plain fair isle  is very stable and suitable for jackets,
coats, cardigans, and the like. The double bed tuck fabric used for the sleeves is surprising light.

Congratulations, Naomi, on a beautifully tailored piece.
