Sandra by Anniken Allis

As we get ready for some lovely Spring days, there's been a fab layering piece featured in the latest edition of Let's Knit magazine. Anniken has created this gorgeous cardigan using Scrumptious DK Worsted in the Olive colourway.

The cardigan is knitted sideways from the sleeves in to the centre and the back is grafted at the centre back which is a really interesting construction for you to try. The cardigan also features an interesting elongated crossed stitch pattern which Anniken has featured before in her designs and so has included a helpful video tutorial of how to create this beautiful stitch here. You won't be surprised to her that Anniken is a teacher at both local yarn shops as well as national events.

The cardigan is sized for UK size 8-22 and you can find the pattern in this month's issue, number 53, at your local news agents or yarn shop. To find out more about Anniken you can visit her wonderful blog where she shares news of her self published designs, regular featured designs in knitting magazines as well as up to date news on where she will be teaching over the coming year. Well done Anniken, keep up the good work!
