“Inspired by surface embroidery techniques, this jacket has raised diagonal cable lines which meet in the centre back and front,” says Emma Vining. “The stitch pattern uses wrap stitches to create the impression of the cables being stitched to the knitting. To knit the wrap stitch, a loop of yarn is pulled through from the back of the knitting, then knitted together with the two stitches it surrounds. For ease of knitting, wraps and cable movements are worked on alternate rows.” It uses The Fibre Co.’s gorgeous Acadia yarn.
