The raised diagonal pattern uses wrap stitches to create the impression of the cables being stitched to the knitting, which is mirrored on the front and back, with the lines meeting at the centre.

This gorgeous cardigan jacket features dramatically raised textures inspired by surface embroidery techniques. The raised diagonal pattern uses wrap stitches to create the impression of the cables being stitched to the knitting, which is mirrored on the front and back, with the lines meeting at the centre. The underarms and sleeves are worked in stockinette stitch, and the cuffs are worked in the wrap stitch pattern, which frames the centre pattern beautifully. Designed and knitted in our Acadia yarn, a rustic blend of silk noil, baby alpaca and Merino wool, makes this project extra special and wearable for many years to come.

On how itโ€™s done, designer Emma Vining says: โ€˜to knit the wrap stitch, a loop of yarn is pulled through from the back of the knitting, then knitted together with the two stitches it surrounds. For ease of knitting, wraps and cable movements are worked on alternate rowsโ€™.
