Cocoon in a fabric at once quiet and expressive. Putting humble knits and purls to good use, Watermark exhibits a harmonious meshing of easy to love (and accomplish) textures: grid stitch, furrowed ribbing, and classic one-by-one ribbing. Nestled in between each are panels of geometric cables, branching to form chevron diamonds that shine when the light hits just right. Contemporary construction details designed to flatter, like modified drop shoulders and gentle waist shaping, marry fabric, pattern, and shape all together — the patch pockets don’t hurt, either!
The body of this cardigan is worked flat in one piece from the hem to the underarm; Garter Stitch Selvedges are worked at the front, armhole, neck, and collar extension edges. After underarm stitches are bound off, the fronts and back are worked separately to the shoulder. The shoulder is shaped using the Sloped Bind Off. The collar extensions are shaped using Short Rows: Wrap & Turn Method, then joined at the center back neck using Joinery Bind Off. The sleeves are worked circularly to the underarm, then the cap is worked flat. Options are given for standard sleeve cuffs or folded cuffs. Furrowed Ribbing and Grid Stitch may be worked either from charts or from written instructions; the Chevron Tree pattern is worked from charts only.
