Knitting pattern for Sine cardigan by Ruth Sørensen for Önling
This is a knitting pattern for a beautiful and classic cardigan in Fair Isle knitting with traditional two-tone Fair Isle rib. The cardigan is designed by the talented Ruth Sørensen, who is one of the best in Denmark to design beautiful Fair Isle knitwear. Sine's cardigan is worked in five colours of Önling No 20, which comes from Shetland - a perfect yarn for pattern knitting and particularly Fair Isle knitting. Sine is knitted from the bottom down using the traditional Fair Isle technique, where you knit in the round and cut up the middle of the front, in armholes and in the neckline.
The cardigan is relatively tight-fitting, so go up a size if you want a looser fit.

Sine cardigan is worked in the round from the bottom up, and cut up in the middle of the front, in the armholes and in the neckline, so that you avoid pattern knitting while purling. The edges in the middle of the front and the neckline are, however, knitted back and forth. The sleeves are knitted from top to bottom.
