ONEIRO is named after the Greek word for dream ("oneiros") and truely lives up to its name. Worked entirely from silk mohair, it's as light and floaty as a cloud and hugs you like your warmest, favorite blanket. Meanwhile the soft and dreamy color gradient makes it a real statement piece in your wardrobe.
ONEIRO was first published in Pompom Quarterly Issue 40 "Dreamscape" in spring 2022 and I am very happy that I can now offer it to you as an individual pattern.
ONEIRO is all about playing with colour and the number of colours used can be chosen freely. I knit two versions of ONEIRO: the pink and orange version is made from a gradient yarn that does all the fading for you, while the cream and lilac version is created from three monochrome colors that are faded into each other while knitting. This pattern includes detailed instructions how to achieve the fade, no matter how many colors you want to use. This makes ONEIRO the perfect stash busting project in which you can use as many mohair leftovers as you like.
ONEIRO is worked flat and sideways in two pieces, working from the sleeve cuff towards the center back. Once the sleeve has been worked, additional stitches are cast on for the front and the back panels and the neckline is shaped with decreases. When both sides are complete, they are joined at the center back with a Three Needle Bind Off. The cardigan is finished off with a beautiful double-knitted hem and front edging.
Short rows are used throughout so that the same row gauge can be achieved for the cable pattern and the brioche stitch pattern; for every 4 rows of the Cable Pattern, 6 rows of brioche are worked. The wrap & turn method is used but wraps should not be picked up on subsequent rows; work wrapped sts as regular sts. To lengthen or shorten the cardigan, when working the Front and Back Panels cast on 2 sts more / less on each side for every 1.5cm / ½" you wish to add or subtract from the length.
I hope you will enjoy ONEIRO just as much as I do! Happy knitting!
Please note that these values are only estimates. Changes in yarn or gauge as well as changes of the pattern can result in a different yardage.
