Gauge: 10 x 10 cm = 19 sts x 28 rows in the texture pattern on 4 mm needles AFTER washing and blocking. The texture will expand when washed, which it shy it is important that you wash and treat the gauge swatch as you would your cardi.
Circular needles 4 mm, 40 and 100 cm.
Circular needles 3 mm, 40, 80, and 100 cm for the rib edge on the body and button placket
Double pointed needles (dpns) 3 mm for the rib on the sleeves, unless you use the magic loop technique. Alternatively, use double pointed needles (size 6 and 9 mm) if you do not wish to use the Magic Loop method.
Procedure: The Air Vibe Cardi is worked top down. The texture is created using decreases, an eyelet pattern, and purl sts whilst a stockinette stripe is shaped between the raglan increases. The stockinette stripe continues along each side of the body and on the flipside of the sleeves. Upon finishing the yoke, the body and sleeves are parted and finished separately. The body and sleeves are continuously worked in the texture pattern, while all edges are finished off with twisted rib. To create a balloon effect on the sleeves, no decreases are worked before the rib edge. The finishing touch of the cardi is the button placket along the opening of the cardigan. It is double knitted and includes button holes.
