The knitting adventures of a French Canadian girl in exile

Raspberries is a new take on a classic: a V-Neck cardigan, worked from the top-down with raglan sleeves in a versatile worsted weight wool. The waist is subtly shaped to flatter the body and the sleeves are tapered for a sleek line without being too tight. The overall look is a fresh and refined version of the casual everyday cardigan.

The lines of the cardigan are accentuated by the beautiful panels on the fronts, back and sides, for a truly feminine knit that looks way more complicated than it really is. The large ribbing bands finishes the cardigan for a timeless look. I used my favorite method for increasing at the raglan line, which I explain in the pattern, and I like to think it gives a tailored appearance to the sleeve line.

For this cardigan, I chose to work with one of my favorite everyday yarns: Valley Yarns Northamptons, in color "Raspberry Heather" (I guess I liked the color, for I named the cardigan after it!).

So, here is Raspberries, and I hope you will like it as much as I do!

It is also off course available in my Ravelry Store:
