Oblique Motion is a top-down cardigan with an allover diamond colorwork pattern. Cardigan features an upright collar worked in doubleknitting technique that is both reversible and wearable folded up or folded down. The doubleknitting continues down the overlapping front panels so that the underside looks equally pleasing as the outside and provides additional structure. The body and sleeves are worked in normal stranded colorwork knitting, with raglan shoulder shaping. The sleeve cuffs and bottom hem of the body are also worked in doubleknitting so that the fabric lies flat and looks neat on the underside. Cardigan is worked seamlessly and no steek is needed as the colorwork pattern is easy to work on the right side and the wrong side of the fabric. Pattern is sized from 30- 60” / 76 - 152 cm bust, with sizing increments every 2” / 5 cm.
Pattern Difficulty: Advanced Pattern uses stranded knitting, stranded purling, doubleknitting, increases and decreases in stranded knitting, and grafting using Kitchener Stitch.
