BabyCocktails Collins PDF
A fitted shape, a short length, and a long tie add something new to this shawl-collared, V necked tweed cardigan. Collins from BabyCocktails has classic Aran motifs that are echoed on both the fronts and the back, and textured seed stitch panels keep the attention towards the center. The collar folds over and continues down the body, and the off-center tie wraps one side over the other in a modern twist. This is best knit in a wooly tweed, which has the body to stay put nicely and looks great in the cables! Collins is knit flat in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. Cable patterns are in chart form only.
