Project planning info
Join us in Ambah’s 2023 Festive KAL and knit up a Twist Cardi. KAL details here
A “twist” on a top down raglan garment, the Twist Cardigan offers plenty of opportunity for you to add your own twist to yours. Begin by choosing between the Waist, Hip and Knee Length. Then add colour to the party. Twist was originally designed with a mini-skein festive set in mind and offers a myriad of ways to incorporate minis into the knit. Knit stripes to showcase the yarn, blend a gradient set of yarn for a continuous fade or have fun with colour blocking. A contrasting main colour serves to enhance the chevron design and provides a counterpoint Knit in fingering weight yarn you may also like to hold a strand of kidsilk mohair together to create a cosier luxe version for chillier days.
Designed to be worn open at the front. Sized to fit bust 30 – 60″/75-150 cm Please note the waist length option is not available for sizes 58-60″/145-150 cm due to the number of Yoke rows required.
Begin by choosing your bust size for a relaxed, close fitting version or size up for an oversized cardi or down for a more fitted version.
Yardage estimates are given below for project planning. The yardage is per strand, so if you are holding kidsilk or similar with your yarn you’ll need the same yardage for each yarn used.
