Spiral Sweater in Wonnacott Organic Wool, joined with herringbone I-cord


This design arose after a workshop where I had been demonstrating what I confidently thought was the wrong way of doing applied I-cord to join two pieces of knitting together just to show what a mess it would make, only to discover that in fact it produced an attractive herringbone I-cord stripe.  It also threw up another I-cord technique; the I-cord rope edging – the sweater seemed to need a more substantial edging than the normal applied I-cord.

The pattern for this is available with the purchase of Wonnacott Organic Wool.  For details, contact Tricia:

Child's Garter Stitch Cardigan knitted sideways and in one piece



These are both in garter stitch and each is knitted in one piece.  The cardigan starts at the left front and moves sideways around the body to the right front.  Shaping is achieved with short rows.

Child’s Mosaic Jacket, knitted in one piece, in garter stitch

The jacket uses a mosiac (or slip-stitch) technique, so only one colour yarn is being used at any one time.  The I-cord edging, including buttonholes is part of the main knitting, so, apart from sewing on buttons, there is very little finishing to do at the end.

Patterns for these two garments are available from Tricia.
