#04 Botanica Medallion Cardigan
From Vogue Knitting: “Mor’s Botanica Medallion cardigan is knit in two pieces with Blue Sky Alpacas’ “Skinny dyed” organic cotton. Begin with the medallion, stitched in the round from the center out. The wide border around the medallion is worked in a band composed of stitches that vary in row gauge. Complete the piece by sewing the band to the edge of the medallion and leaving open slits for the armholes, which are finished with a crochet edging.”
