Pretty, pretty Meris

Graceful and delicately detailed is Elizabeth Doherty’s Meris caridgan in Finch/Sorbet. Imagine, can you? It’s worked from the top down. Truly.

Meris is not for the faint hearted. There are things to pay attention to: Neck shaping, a lace pattern, short-row sleeve caps, and a refined i-cord edging all around. Worth it? I think so. Really, it’s not that it’s hard. It isn’t. And every bit of knitterly technique contributes to the sweater’s gently contoured fit and thoughtful detailing.

Note the sleeve cuff detail and the dart shaping.

A column of yarnovers makes a good button band, choose the yarn overs you want for your little buttons. And see how clean a trim that i-cord makes.

And the back–oh, the back.

And one more photo because I can’t resist. Love that swinginess.

    This is a sublime pattern and I wish I didn’t have three things on the needles so that I could start it immediately!
