Feather Cardigan Wrap knitting pattern by Holli Yeoh | River City Yarns

Feather Cardigan Wrap

Feather motifs with twisted stitches flow along the edges and run down the back of this beautiful cardigan to wrap you in warmth. The cardigan body is worked sideways from front edges to the centre back and is framed with a band of feathers at each selvedge edge. The stitches of the body are left live to be used later in a decorative double bind off. Stitches for the feather band that runs along the top edge and around the neck are put on hold while working the shoulders and armholes, then resumed for the last few inches of the piece to the centre back. The front armhole is longer than the back armhole creating an English tailored shoulder for a sophisticated look and comfortable fit. Set-in sleeves complete the look.
