Trescao (cardigan) is a crop raglan sleeve cardigan, whose back is slightly longer than the front. It is thought to be worn on dresses, skirts or high-waisted trousers.
The garter stitch gives it a feminine look. This cardigan is simple, elegant and very easy to wear; it will become a staple in your wardrobe.
Very accessible to beginners. Can be knitted either with a single DK yarn, or with a fingering and a mohair to make it more cozy for the winter. A jumper version is available under the name Trescao (jumper).
The construction is top-down: the neck is knitted in garter stitch. The raglans are started and the technique of the german short rows will allow to raise the back neckline compared to the front.
The sleeves are put on hold to knit the body; the stitches of the sleeves are picked-up to be knitted one by one, with a garter stitch finish.
