I realized that Interweave Knits Fall 2016 team with editor Meghan Babin had chosen more amazing photos of my Kathe Cardigan for the 20th Anniversary Edition which I wanted to show off. So here they are, all taken by Harper Point Photography. Here is the introduction to the cardigan: “The Kathe Cardigan is an elegant and feminine modern classic. The leaf lace panels pair with the luscious open collar to make a stunning garment. This comfortable knit can be worn with a skirt and heels to the office or dressed down for the weekend.”
It is knitted in the stunning SweetGeorgia Superwash Sport, using 3 mm/US 2.5 needle with a gauge of 24 stitches and 36 rows in stockinette stitch. The cardigan is worked back and forth in separate pieces and seamed. The tuck on the collar is worked with 2 circular needles held parallel. The collar ends in an I-cord bind off. All parts are cast on using a provisional cast on method, which is removed and then replaced by an I-cord bind off.
I love this photo showing off the details of the stitch pattern as well as the collar finish. The stitch pattern is one of those that are incredibly fun to knit as it develops between your hands and is easy to memorize after a few repeats. The semi-solid hand dyed color in Tumbled Stone, a divine taupe color, which highlights the stitch definition. There is a large selection from colors to choose from in SweetGeorgia Superwash Sport, so you can easily pick your own favorite. The English pattern is available both as a single pattern or in the magazine, which has another 19 patterns to choose from. I suggest you check out the magazine patterns before you choose.
