A shaped cardigan with flattering vertical stripes, worked in Colinette Giotto. It has shimmer and colour depth and knits up quickly. Short row shaping is used for waist and bust shaping. There is no shoulder shaping.

A Noblin design for Noblin Knits

Materials:

Colinette Giotto 5(5,6,6) 100g hanks

8mm needles

Darning needle

Brooch/Belt if desired

Gauge: 12 sts and 16 rows to 10 cm (4 inches)

Abbreviations:

k knit

p purl

sl1 slip one purlwise

yf yarn forward

yb yarn back

RS right side

WS wrong side

M1 make 1 by working into the bar between stitches

k2tog knit two stitches together

p2tog purl two stitches together

tbl through back of loop/s

st-st stocking stitch

To prevent holes forming during the working of short rows, the technique of wrapping the next unworked stitch is used. The instructions are written out in full (e.g. yf, sl1, yb, turn). On subsequent rows, the wraps will need to be worked at the same time as the stitch. To do this, slip the stitch to the right needle, insert the tip of the left needle into the wrap, slip the stitch back to the left needle. There are now two stitches on the left needle. I use k2tog on knit rows and p2togtbl on the purl rows. The nature of the yarn means that any missed wraps are not that noticeable.
