My new work, Wilma for Artesano Vintage Handknits patterns is now available on Ravelry! The above 2 images by courtesy of Artesano. They just released the first edition of their newsletter. Check this page because you can get a free knitting pattern from the collection.
I am just so excited about it and am so happy about the design. This project is to celebrate the release of their new colours. The above picture is made in Guyana (2133) for main colour and Wholemeal (C969) for the trim and the waist band.
This one above is made with Columbia (8440) for the main colour and Bolivia (0785) for the trimming and the waist band.
I do enjoy knitting with Artesano yarns. For this Vintage Handknits collection, I wanted the design to be something feminine that you can wear indoor when you go out somewhere. I also wanted the structure of the top to be something that keeps you warm but without becoming too hot.
Basically the cardigan has ruffles around the waist and the cuffs. These creates feminine look but also the garment “catches” the air so that wearing this top is always fresh. It has a low V-neck shaping and the waist is shaped with dainty but simple cable stitch over 3 sts.
I made the samples myself and I thoroughly enjoyed it. If I have time, I want to make one for myself
