Twisted Vines is a long-sleeved, slightly boxy V-neck pullover with a twisted stitch cable pattern that runs along the saddle shoulders and down the sleeves. The cable pattern was inspired by foliage in all its beautiful shapes and forms - vines, leaves, trees, flowers - and stages of being alive and in decay. It’s a super wearable sweater that’ll go with everything!

Sample shown is knit in colourway Cedar Waxwing. Charifa wears a size 4 with 12 cm / 4.75” of positive ease.
4 mm / US 6 circular needle with a cable length of at least 60 cm / 24” (or needle size to obtain gauge)
4 mm / US 6 double-pointed needles (or needle size to obtain gauge)
4 mm / US 6 circular needle with a cable length of 40 cm / 16”
3.5 mm / US 4 circular needle with a cable length of at least 60 cm / 24” (or needle 2 sizes smaller than main needle)
3.5 mm / US 4 double-pointed needles (or needle 2 sizes smaller than main needle) for cuffs
Alternatively, the magic loop technique can be used for the sleeves and sleeve cuffs. To work the sleeves and cuffs using the magic loop technique, use a circular needle with a cable length of at least at least 80 cm / 32” instead of double-pointed needles.
19 sts x 29 rounds = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4” (on larger needle, in the round, in stockinette stitch, after blocking)
28 sts x 32 rows = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4” (on larger needle, worked flat, in cable pattern, after blocking)
Removable stitch markers (x 5: 2 each in 2 colours, 1 in 3rd colour)
Curious and busy – these are the words that have always described me. I want to know all the things and then I want to do them. Since I was a very small child, I’ve loved art, literature, math, history and craft in equal measure. To me, designing knitwear marries all these many things. It’s where I feel like my most true self. You can find Joan over on papermoonknits.com
