Indira - c. 2013


INDIRA




Indira is a warm, soft cardigan with a positive ease at the chest for comfort. Knit “seamless” from the top-down, its construction includes round yoke as well as raglan yoke shaping. The colored stripes are knit using a diamond stitch pattern, to bring more definition to the yoke and hem.
You may also wish to knit the stripes in stockinette stitch, without having to worry about changing the stitch count.
