Fiber Dreams 66 Ionic PDF
The ancient Greeks were great builders of their time. The stately columns they designed to hold up walls and graceful archways came in three basic styles: Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian. The Doric columns were the stockiest, simplest of the columns, Corinthian the most slender and decorative, while Ionic was somewhere in between. Fiber Dreams Ionic coordinates with the Corinthian cardigan, and pulls on easily over a skirt or jeans. Front and back are knit separately from the hem up from a provisional cast on. Body is worked in an attractive mock-rib stitch that is fun and easy to do. I-cord edgings, added after the sweater has been assembled, give the top a polished look.
