Slow Curve

Long before the first leaves start turning, I start dreaming about that perfect Fall sweater. This year, I knew I wanted something a little longer to go with skinny jeans and boots. This year, I wanted a long cardigan with a tall collar that can double as a jacket when the weather begins to get cool.

Slow Curve features ribs that travel slowly in and out again, providing a touch of waist shaping while highlighting your beautiful curves. The ribs then pull together at the raglans before blending into the stand-up collar.

This sleek jacket is knit in pieces and seamed for easier knitting at the raglan shaping and for increased stability.

Version 1.3

The previous versions have awkward set up instructions for working the back with sizes L and XL. The updated instructions provide a smoother transition from the ribbing:

And for the right front:
Row 1 (RS): K 10(10, 10, 14, 14), pm, [p2, k2] 3 times, p2, pm, k 14(18, 22, 22, 26).

Version 1.4
Two changes to the left front instructions that allow the ribs to properly align.
