‘Fanel is a versatile cardigan, suitable for many styles and situations. It is a simple garment but which stands out with pretty details: broken rib, folded cuffs, shoulder shape, discreet buttonholes. Easy to wear and elegant, Fanel is also fun to knit. It is worked from the top down. The body and sleeves are divided at the underarm and worked separately to the bottom. Sleeves are worked circularly to sleeve cuff. The stitches for neckband are picked up and worked flat at the end.’
Orlane Sucche is the talented lady behind the beautiful Fanel cardigan I cast off recently. Her designs are often in my Ravelry queue and when the opportunity came to collaborate, the Bluff Cove DK felt like the perfect yarn for a modern take on a classic design. Two natural shades are available, the natural undyed grey and the original chestnut.
