Joelle Meier Rioux

for Classic Elite Yarns   2008

"Embrace" Cardigan

Here is something magnificently unusual and yet very satisfying to work. Seldom are a design and the yarn called for so interdependent. Meier Rioux has you wind each of the two skeins into balls beginning with the darkest part of the colourway, and knit the fronts out to the side seams; sleeves are next, from the cap down; then you alternate the balls on the back (knitted from hem up). The result is striking, flattering, painterly, knitterly-- truly remarkable. Closure options are up to you; a stickpin is perfect.
