ROSSI Neck Cardigan (ENG)

The ROSSI Neck Cardigan is a simple, modern cardigan in a minimalist style that has a striking look due to the brioche stitch pattern and the simple cut. This cardigan is worked top down in one piece and the narrow sleeves allow it to be easily worn under a jacket or parka.

You will start working the front right and front left bands, then pick up stitches along the long side of both front bands and work increases along the shoulder for the front and back pieces.


After all the increases along the shoulders have been worked, the right front piece, the back piece and then the left front piece are worked separately up to the armholes. All three parts are then joined together under the armholes and worked together to the bottom.


You will pick up stitches for the sleeves around the armholes, and work them straight, in the round. These instructions contain a detailed model sketch with all dimensions, as well as a blank sketch for notes and conversions.


You can find supporting videos on the panel construction and the short rows (optional) in brioche stitch under ‘knitting techniques‘.
