Roses and Pomegranates Cardigan
Roses for love, pomegranates for life. Spring can be cold, so be sure to bundle up in a sweater that speaks of spring while warming for winter. Then keep wearing it all year long. Norwegians have worn sweaters featuring in a rosepattern allover since the mid 19th century. I’ve kept the old feel, with a pattern that can be made in the traditional short length and tight fit shown (size X-Small), or a longer relaxed fit to suit more modern sensibilities.
Roses is worked in the round from the hem up, in a mathematically-balanced design that knits quickly and cleanly. Sleeves are knit separately and sewn in, Norwegian style. I love this shade of mallard blue; feel free to choose a color that makes your heart sing.
