his asymmetric cardigan is inspired by the way trailing ivy follows the light from the sun. It features chunky cables worked in short-rows to create the attractive curve around the neck.
The matching cable is also used for the sleeves, where its size increases slowly to give the visual illusion of a slightly-flared sleeve.
The technique is concentrated on the cables around the collar, with the rest knitted in stocking stitch. This is an enjoyable, ‘brain-teaser’ project that will reward you with a beautiful cardigan!
