  • Peony - Cardigan

    Peony is a glorious love letter to dramatic-yet-wearable shapes. Its cropped length is balanced out by the deep V-neck and balloon sleeves, while the lines of twisted stitches travelling down the body add texture. On the sleeves, they transform into peony buds hiding delicate petals.

    The pattern starts with the sleeves, worked without shaping to create volume, from the cuff up and in the round. The yoke fronts and back are worked top-down and in pieces. It is shaped by raglan and circular increases, with various twisted ribbing patterns. After joining the sleeves and yoke, the body is then knitted flat. The button band is picked up afterward and the yoke is finished with a Three-Needle Bind-Off, which can be done before knitting the body to check the length.
