Bindweed stems, observed during a walk in a Californian spring field, inspired the design of this cropped, open-front cardigan. The muted color and gentle halo give the sweater a soft and natural look. Designed to be worn with approximately 10 cm of positive ease, Bindweed works super well with a variety of outfits from simple jeans to floral dresses, providing the comfort and coziness of a hug wherever the road takes us.
Bindweed is knit from the top down in a seamless raglan manner. The front sections and the back are worked in stockinette, and balloon sleeves are richly decorated with a pattern of intertwined cables and nupps. The side border of the cardigan is knit at the same time with the body and has a small cable running along a few 2x2 rib stitches. The bottom is finished with a folded stockinette hem. Both the charts and the written row-by-row instructions are provided.
