… big & small leaves cardigan …

Twining leaves, growing from big leaves at the bottom to small ones curling around the neck.

This is an experiment constructing a cardigan in an unusual way. The body is knitted bottom up with a large leaf panel. Then the sleeves are worked (also bottom up with 1 large leaf at the bottom). After that the leaf panel is worked (while the leaves are getting smaller) around the neck. Stitches are picked up at the front and neck to work the buttonbands with short rows to follow the curve of the leaves.

The bordeaux cardi is worked in alpaca dk (yarn held double)

A quick knit in bulky yarn or in dk weight held double.
The grey cardi is the first one I made. It’s a bit short, but I like it and I can’t make it longer because I ran out of yarn

One more pic to show of the leaf panel
