Wave Theory Cardigan
Wave Theory Cardigan for Standard Bed Knitting Machines
The body and sleeves of this tuck stitch cardigan are knit side-to-side. The fronts and back of the body are knit in one continuous piece. Short rows on the bottom section of the body piece create an A-line shape. The tuck pattern is knit with a thick and a thin yarn that alternate every two rows. The bottom edge naturally forms a decorative lettuce curl by virtue of the tuck stitch pattern.
The stitch pattern is a 24-stitch repeat and is suitable for both punch card and electronic standard bed machines. No ribber or garter carriage is used.
