Jim's Perfect Peach Cardigan

A Christmas gift for his cousin, knit using two colors of Malabrigo Cotton that he overdyed. The pattern is his own design, but it's best to let Jim explain:


"There are ten stitch patterns involved: Simple Seed, Lorgnette Cable, Twining Vine Leaf, Flame Chevron (sides under the arms), Diamond Cable-topped Crossed V, and Candelight stitches form the body, with

frilly half-Horseshoe and Roman Stripe patterns at the waist, and Tulip Bud edged simple seeded cuffs. The princess-style sleeves have a Three-Leaf run with Diamond Cables containing a Double-Seed fill for visual interest. The background is simple reverse stockinette."


Simple? There's nothing simple about this work of art!
