Audrey In Unst KAL... the yarn is coming, the yarn is coming!
Twist Collective - Fall 2009
Audrey In Unst
by Gudrun Johnston
Audrey is a cute vintage-inspired, cropped cardigan featuring a bib of Shetland lace. This cardi is knit seamlessly and worked bottom-up with set-in sleeves. The sleeves are worked by picking up stitches at the armhole and working short rows to shape the sleeve cap. This sweater will be a lovely addition to the wardrobe! Classic and pretty, with a few new skills to learn in the process to expand our knitterly technique repertoire.
As a point of interest : Unst is the northernmost of the Shetland Islands in Scotland; largely grassland, with coastal cliffs.
Finished Measurements: Bust, buttoned:
Needle Sizes: US 5 (3.75 mm,) US 4 (3.5 mm), US 3 (3.25 mm)
Gauge: 24 sts and 34 rows = 4" / 10cm in Stockinette st on size 4 US / 3.5 mm needles
