DAUW Cardigan by Belgian knitwear designer Nele Druyts @apellaknits

knit with Tulliver Blueface/Masham DK

The DAUW CARDIGAN is your perfect companion on those early chilly days. With its loose fit it’s easy to throw on when you go outside to take that first breath of fresh morning air.

 

The Dauw cardigan is knitted bottom up  in one piece. Extra stitches are cast on for the sleeves. The side borders are knitted and seamed at the end. It’s a quite basic pattern but the contrast between the reverse stockinette stitch and honeycomb brioche and the shoulder shaping technique make it a great knitting pattern for beginners who are looking for a little challenge. The pattern comes with a video tutorial for the honeycomb brioche as well as some pictures to help sewing the border to the body.

 

The pattern is available in English and Dutch.

 

Nele, a 28-year-old parttime knitwear designer, is always designing from her own point of view. She tries to create knitwear that she knows she herself is going to love to wear. And that means rather classic, straightforward designs, but with an intricate stitch or lace pattern, colourwork or shape. Not too much, but just enough to keep it interesting.
