My Euler Cardigan was published in Wool Studio Vol. VI by Interweave and you have already seen the photos by Harper Point Photography in this blogpost. So here are some of the photos my husband took of me back in our front garden in December, just after Christmas. Why is it named after Leonhard Euler? Petra777 on Ravelry, asked me. The Interweave Wool Studio theme was geometry and I wanted a name that reflected well with the intricate cable pattern. I searched for a bit and then found Euler! Petra replied: “I don’t know how much you know about Euler but he was such an awesome mathematician. He is celebrated for so many accomplishments, amongst the many as the father of graph theory. One concept in graph theory is an Euler path. The cables with the dropped stitches of this cardigan remind me so much of an Euler path; which is a path composed of vertices and edges and visits every edge only once. This is another fantastic design Linda!” I am overwhelmed by this, that the name fitted so well as well as the complement! Thank you so much, Petra!
Here is the introduction to the pattern: “Named after the accomplished and creative mathematician Leonhard Euler, this cardigan combines dropped stitches with bold cables along the front panels. The pieces are worked separately and seamed together for structure. The dramatic front panels hang loosely without a closure for an elegant but cozy sweater.”
