A simple and concise female cardigan, knitted with knitting needles from two types of yarn of contrasting color with thick knitting needles.

The female cardigan from the new collection of Kim Hargreaves knits with spokes front face and has a straight silhouette. The classic style, the presence of pockets, a cardigan without a clasp, but the most unusual thing about it is that the designer mixes two yarns of contrasting color. This technique is often used by different designers, for example, Helga Isager in her latest collection for the Purl cardigan , or, for example, famous fashion houses such as Loro Pianna, Brunello Cucinelli or Ganni. The cloth becomes more voluminous, and knitting from thick yarn is considered a high-speed project.

Materials for knitting a stylish female cardigan:
To knit a cardigan, you can obviously take melange yarn, and if you do not have it at hand, or you do not know where to put yarn from your stocks, then you can "get married" to another, more noble thread. At the same time, colors can be cardinally opposite, the canvas will play with new colors and will look luxurious and incredibly fashionable.

Kim Hargiwis chose two cotton threads of different thickness and color for her cardigan.

Thick cotton Rowan Handknit Cotton (100% cotton, 85 meters long in coils weighing 50 grams): 9 (10, 10, 11, 11, 12) skeins of black color 252.

Thin cotton Rowan Summerlite 4 ply (100% cotton, 175 meters long in coils weighing 50 grams): 4 (5, 5, 6, 6, 6) skein of linen color 418.

Special note: It is recommended to knit from individual skeins, than pre-wind them in one, so the threads will better lie in the canvas, creating the magic of a melange pattern.
