Ribblehead cardigan by Alison Moreton

Ribblehead cardigan by Alison Moreton


A women’s yoked cardigan with colourwork detail at collar and cuffs using two strands of Titus to create a gradient. An alternative option to work the contrast colour in a single shade of Dovestone is also offered. Instructions for doing the colourwork in a modified slipped stitch technique are given, which avoids the knitter having to carry two colours in a wrong side row.

Yarn Quantities: 4-8 skeins (920 - 1840 yards  / 841 - 1682 m) for main colour plus either 1 skein of Dovestone dk for contrast colour or either 2x10g mini skeins of each of 3 colours of Titus (Rhubarb, Chevin and Lotherton).

Needles: 4mm x 80cm circular and DPNs
Notions: Tapestry needle, stitch markers, waste yarn
Sizes available: XS (S, M, L, 2XL, 3XL) to fit bust 28-30 (32-34, 36-38, 40-42, 44-46, 48-50, 52-54) inches, worn with approximately 0-2” positive ease.
