THEA COLEMAN

CHARTREUSE CARDIGAN :: Baby Cocktails

£6.00

I loved making this one. The lines of these cables are rhythmic and bold, and the idea here was all about emphasizing that. They are classic, but not exactly. And the geometry inside them is just asymmetric enough to keep them interesting.

I’ve been playing with construction and am in love with Elizabeth Zimmermann’s methods, so this design features a version of her bottom up seamless construction with a saddle shoulder and a shirt back. Again, it’s basic but not exactly.

Chartreuse features bold cables, a cozy length, pockets, and a shawl collar. Plus to make it as woofy as possible, it’s knit in a worsted weight wool.
