Designer's Note on Fit:
Sizes reflect circumference around body and bust. Sample is shown worn with 6”/15.25cm positive ease at bust. If you are between sizes, I suggest choosing the smaller of the two and adding width and length as needed. I like the fit of this with between 5-7”/12.75-17.75cm of positive ease.
Claret is a deeply textured, cabled sweater featuring cables in diagonal lines. At both hem and wrist, the cable motif emerges from the cast on rib in beautiful V-shaped sections, which are then worked upwards to create a deeply striking fabric.
The center cable on the front of the sweater opens up to create a clean edge for the deep V-neck, and this edge is brought around the shoulders and back neckline for a beautifully finished look around the collar.
Claret’s sleeves echo the body with a single panel of the cables, and the back of the sweater provides some contrast, using a simpler version of the chart - and some less involved knitting!
