When the weather gets cold, you'll be happy to slip into this cozy cardigan designed by Lijuan Jing. It uses Jojoland's variegated machine-washable wool yarn called Melody. The sweater is knit in one piece from the top down, forming the bat-wing sleeves as you go. The textured stitch that gives this cardigan character is a 4-row mock cable. Stitches are picked up and worked in rib for the front button bands and neck band. The finished chest measurements are 33 (36, 38, 40, 42)" but the stretchy mock cable stitch creates fabric with a lot of give. The top can be machine washed and dried flat.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- 29" or longer circular needles in US size 4 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
- 29" or longer circular needle in US size 3
- stitch markers
- tapestry needle
