Rivulet is a stylish, flattering, jacket-style cardigan features cable shaping, a peplum that looks great on knitters of all sizes, and inset panels under the arm that give a charming swing to the finished piece. The front, neckline and shoulders use garter stitch on all edges for rustic charm, but advanced knitters or cable fans can easily adapt the charts given here to make cabled edges. You could also make seed stitch edges or something incorporating your favorite stitch pattern â€“ the pattern is very forgiving. The upper arms are knit in 1×1 rib, which is exceptionally flattering for plus sizes, not to mention comfortable and flexible. Shown in Beaverslide Dry Goods Fisherman Weight yarn, a mule-spun 2-ply yarn with almost handspun consistency, you could easily make this pattern in just about any popular yarn or even your own handspun. Rivulet cardigan, $6
What do you get for your $6? Well, among other things, the chance to make the tech editor cry with 5 pages of charts. Like this snippet. Except 5 full pages long. Total pattern length of 11 pages, so let’s hear it for digital distribution, my friends.
Perhaps not as fun as seeing Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man get naked and help you knit (as seen in Exploded View), but hey… we take our fun where we can get it.
