INSTRUCTIONS

 

COLOR SEQUENCE

Note: This is a long sequence, but it is made up of three-row color repeats. A is the main color, used every third row. The other colors are used either three or five times, and then swapped out.

Work 1 row of each color as indicated: [A, B, C] 3 times, [A, B, D] 2 times, [A, E, D] 3 times, [A, C, B] 3 times, [A, C, E] 2 times, [A, D, E] 3 times


CARDI

Note: Work begins with a long scarf that becomes the shawl collar. The shoulders are then "grown" by increasing at two corners centered at the back while continuing to work the long fronts. The body is then formed by joining the piece at the underarms and leaving armholes open for sleeves. The body is worked even to desired length.

Collar

Note: The foundation will be slightly more relaxed than remainder of the collar, so the edge can expand as it rolls over for a shawl collar.

With A, Fsc 183 (189, 195, 201, 207, 213) to measure approx 61 (63, 65, 67, 69, 71)"/155 (160, 165, 170, 175.5, 180.5)cm, change to B.

Row 1: With B, ch 1, sc in first sc, [ch 1, skip next Fsc, sc in next Fsc] across, turn; change to C—92 (95, 98, 101, 104, 107) sc.

Rows 2–20: With new color, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] across, end with ch 1, sc in last sc, turn; change to next color in Color Sequence.

Shoulders

Note: Shoulders are now "grown" by making two corner increases equally spaced from center of back neck. Mark the ch-1 space at center of each corner, move markers up as work progresses.

Row 21: With new color, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] 42 (43, 44, 45, 46, 47) times, ch 1, (sc, ch 1, sc) in next ch-1 space (corner made), place marker in last ch-1 made, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] 5 (6, 7, 8, 9, 10) times, ch 1, (sc, ch 1, sc) in next ch-1 space (corner made), place marker in last ch-1 made, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] 42 (43, 44, 45, 46, 47) times, end with ch 1, sc in last sc, turn; change to next color in Color Sequence—94 (97, 100, 103, 106, 109) sc.

Rows 22–44 (46, 48, 50, 52, 54) (pattern increase): With new color, *[ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] to next marked corner ch-1 space, ch 1, (sc, ch 1, sc) in corner ch-1 space; rep from * once more; [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] across, end with ch 1, sc in last sc, turn; change to next color in Color Sequence—140 (147, 154, 161, 168, 175) sc. Remove markers.

Row 45 (47, 49, 51, 53, 55): With new color, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] across, end with ch 1, sc in last sc, turn; change to next color in Color Sequence.

Joining

Note: The back section (between corners) will now be joined to each front section, skipping armhole stitches.

Row 46 (48, 50, 52, 54, 56) (joining row): With new color, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] 32 times, skip next 23 (25, 27, 29, 31, 33) ch-1 spaces (for armhole), ch 1, place marker in last ch-1 space made (for underarm), [sc in next ch-1 space, ch 1] 30 (33, 36, 39, 42, 45) times, place marker in last ch-1 space made (for underarm), skip next 23 (25, 27, 29, 31, 33) ch-1 spaces (for armhole), [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] 31 times, end with ch 1, sc in last sc; change to next color in Color Sequence, turn—94 (97, 100, 103, 106, 109) sc.

Body

Row 47 (49, 51, 53, 55, 57): With new color, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] to marked ch-1 space, ch 1, sc in marked ch-1 space at underarm, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] to next marked ch-1 space, ch 1, sc in marked ch-1 space at underarm, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] across, end with ch 1, sc in last sc; change to next color in Color Sequence, turn.

Rows 48 (50, 52, 54, 56, 58): With new color, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] across, end with ch 1, sc in last sc; change to next color in Color Sequence, turn. Do not remove or move markers.

Repeat last row 58 (59, 60, 61, 62, 63) more times or to desired length, changing colors per Color Sequence, end by working a row with A. Fasten off all colors.


SLEEVES

Notes:

1. Sleeves are worked in joined rounds, back and forth. So far, there is no obvious right side or wrong side. Make that decision now and as you work the sleeves you will carry unused strands of colors up the wrong side (inside of sleeve).

2. To avoid big holes at the underarms, begin each sleeve with a sc2tog that bridges the gap.

With same color used in joining row, and moving in the opposite direction of armhole stitches, join yarn with slip st in the sc row edge just before the marked ch-1 space at underarm, inserting hook under two strands of row edge.

Round 1: Ch 1, sc2tog over same row edge and row edge on other side of marked ch-1 space, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] 23 (25, 27, 29, 31, 33) times around armhole, end with ch 1; join with slip st in first sc; change to next color in Color Sequence, turn—24 (26, 28, 30, 32, 34) sc.

Round 2: With new color, [ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space] around, end with ch 1; join with slip st in first sc, turn.

Repeat last round  58 (59, 60, 58, 59, 60) more times or to desired length, changing colors per Color Sequence, end by working a row with A. Fasten off all colors.
