Pattern Release: Slipstream Cardigan

Now available from The Chilly Dog, the Slipstream Cardigan knitting pattern featuring Skacel HiKoo Sueño Worsted Yarn.
I am so excited to be starting the new year with a big pattern release, my Slipstream Cardigan! If you follow @thechillydog on Instagram, you know that I have been working on this sweater design since October.

Despite my best efforts, I hit a couple snags along the way which meant a complete redesign after frogging the entire sweater. (I'll tell you more about that in an upcoming post.) It was well worth the time and effort though because this sweater is a dream!

Materials

First of all, I'd like to thank my friends at Skacel for providing the yarn and buttons for this design.

The yarn is HiKoo Sueño Worsted and is a blend of 80% Superwash Merino / 20% Viscose from Bamboo. I made my sweater in color 1564 Manatee Tonal, but there are lots of other gorgeous colors to choose from.

The buttons are 34 mm round Skacel wood buttons and were a great compliment to the yarn.

What is a Slipstream?

Some of you may know that I have a background in aerospace and mechanical engineering and sometimes I reach back to my nerdy early days for knitting inspirations.

Slipstream: a current of air or water that is driven back by a rotating propeller or jet engine.
To me, the cables in this sweater loosely resemble the slipstream concept.

For Knitters

This sweater has a pretty basic cardigan design, but there are a couple features that you might enjoy.
  • Cables - There are two different types of cables in the design, a Propeller Cable and a Six Strand Cable. Both are worked across the same number of rows to create a more balanced look and to make it easier to knit. You never have to cross stitches in both cables on the same row.
  • Body - Most knitters do not enjoy joining pieces together so the body of the sweater is worked as a single piece instead of a back piece and two front pieces.
  • Sleeve Shaping - I tried to keep things simple with semi-raglan sleeve cap shaping. This means that the sleeve has a more angular shape. This makes figuring out the decreases easier as well as matching up the sleeve to the body for joining.
