Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2009: “Pink, lilac and chocolate colorways of ‘Mori’ by Koigu Wool Designs combine deliciously to ripple throughout a top-down raglan cardigan by Paula Strietelmeier. The wavy feather-and-fan stripes that anchor the bodice and sleeves - achieved with closed increases as opposed to yarnovers - are echoed on the short-row collar. All edges are picked up and finished with a stockinette-stitch welt.”

“Standard-fitting cardigan worked from the neck edge to the lower edge in stockinette stitch with ripple pattern striped edges.”
