i love practical sweaters, but we also need sweaters that will dress up a pair of trousers and travel easily. i thought a little semi-fitted cardigan with a subtle texture would be just what was needed—it looks like a jacket, but feels like a sweater, with a flattering amount of shaping for any body type (and it comes in eight sizes, yay). knit up in sport yarn, it’s a wearable weight for several seasons.
my dear friend chris has been sending me gorgeous sweater yarns for several years now, which i have been lucky enough to knit into garments for both david and myself. all this time i’ve been promising i would write the patterns for these pieces, so i’m awfully happy to be featuring the yarn and patterns together (finally). thank you chris for making these pieces possible!
rachel put her usual eagle eye to the new task of proofreading this pattern; many thanks for all your hard work and attention to detail rachel.
tana took on the enormous task of tech-editing and sizing my sweater patterns, for which i am completely grateful as a newbie to this work. i am learning so much and hope that our working relationship becomes a long-standing one.
my friend jocelyn eagerly volunteered to test knit this sweater and has been letting me know she enjoys wearing it as well. thank you so very much jocelyn!
and of course, many thanks to david for pulling off yet another lovely series of photos—it was very hot, i was tired, but he made it all look good anyway . . .
