THE FIBRE COMPANY PLUS KELBOURNE WOOLENS
Maeve, this sublime dolman sleeve cardigan from The Fibre Company, is knit in two pieces. It begins with the cable panel, then stitches are cast on and the body and cable panel are worked at the same time. Once both pieces are complete, a 3 needle bind-off is used to join the two pieces together in the center back. The body hems and panels are then seamed (construction diagram included), and stitches for the ribbing are picked up and worked in the round for the sleeves. An applied i-cord is worked around the body opening to complete the sweater. To determine proper fit, measure wingspan from elbow to elbow with arms outstretched. Model is a 32” bust wearing the 36” size.
