Knit-A-Long Spring 2013
Twist Collective - Fall 2009
Audrey In Unst
by Gudrun Johnston
Audrey is a cute vintage-inspired, cropped cardigan featuring a bib of Shetland lace. This cardi is knit seamlessly and worked bottom-up with set-in sleeves. The sleeves are worked by picking up stitches at the armhole and working short rows to shape the sleeve cap. This sweater will be a lovely addition to the wardrobe! Classic and pretty, with a few new skills to learn in the process to expand our knitterly technique repertoire.
As a point of interest : Unst is the northernmost of the Shetland Islands in Scotland; largely grassland, with coastal cliffs.
