Ribblehead by Alison Moreton
A women's yoked cardigan with colourwork detail at collar and cuffs, knitted in Winterburn DK with detail in Titus or Winterburn DK, sizes XS-3XL.
Inspired by the Ribblehead viaduct on the Settle and Carlisle railway running through the Yorkshire Dales, colourwork detail at the collar and cuffs using two strands of Titus to create a gradient echoes the view of the landscape framed in the arches of the viaduct. An alternative option to work the contrast colour in a single shade of Dovestone is also offered. Instructions for doing the colourwork in a modified slipped stitch technique are given, which avoids the knitter having to carry two colours in a wrong side row.
Sizes XS (S, M, L, 2XL, 3XL) to fit bust 28-30 (32-34, 36-38, 40-42, 44-46, 48-50, 52-54) inches, worn with approximately 0-2" positive ease.
You will need 4 (4, 5, 5, 6, 7, 8) hanks of MC, shown in Coal and for CC either 2 mini skeins of each of 3 colours of Titus (Rhubarb, Chevin and Lotherton) or 1 skein of Winterburn dk.
