Well I’m afraid Knitty said no to this one but they were very appreciative :-)
After several people said that they would like to knit it I have decided to go it alone and with the great help and technical wizardry that is our favourite code monkey Casey, I give you Candlelight!
Short, Tie fronted cardi in Rowan Kidsilk Night.
This design was inspired by the beautiful lace shawls such as Birch and Dove knitted in this lovely yarn. Not everyone is keen on wearing shawls so I designed this top for those who want to experience the softness of KSH without the hassle of wrapping and trailing ends. Also at two to three balls of yarn it is a fairly economical garment in a luxury yarn.
32 – 34 inches [36-38 inches, 40-42 inches, 44-46 inches, 48-50 inches]
Any of the Rowan Kidsilk Yarns could be used or any other similar yarn
Dress it up with a little black dress or dress it down with a pair of jeans
Many thanks to Dancing Daughter for being the perfect model
