GARDINER YARN WORKS
Stretchy rib, waist shaping, fun cable panels and totally seamless construction make Valencia from Gardiner Yarn Works an engaging summer knit. Because the ribbing is so stretchy, you’ll want to knit a size with considerable negative ease, according to the designer you can take your regular bust measurement and subtract 8-10 inches. The cable stitch pattern instructions are both knitted and charted.
