Adeline’s Cardigan Pattern Released

Adeline’s Cardigan was made for the Interweave Knits Winter 2020 issue.  The cover design has been returned to me together with the rights to the pattern, so I have released the pattern in English and Norwegian on Ravelry. On the cover you can see model Olivia Lindtein wearing Adeline’s Cardigan with make-up & hair by Nina Hjertaas Bull and jewellery by Kaja Gjedebo Design, all captured by photographer Wenche Hoel-Knai back in December at Sentralen in Oslo.

Adeline’s Cardigan is a stunning feast for the eyes. The generous peplum is worked sideways in three pieces. Stitches are picked up from the top of the peplum, turning the sides into asymmetrical wings. The cardigan has Gothic inspired features such as a standing collar, fitted waist and puffed sleeves. The back and fronts are worked from the bottom up with framed moss stitch panels in the sides for textural opulence. Captivating cables abound in this piece with contrasting stockinette sleeves that end in pleats.
