Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2007: “See the enchanted forest for the trees. DKNY’s elegant motif finds its fiber soul mate here in olive ‘Merinos Sei’ by Lane Borgosesia/Trendsetter Yarns. The textured trees on the oversize cardigan are serendipitously surrounded by moss stitching. Ribbing secures the edges, button band and fold-over collar.”

Notes from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2007:

  1. Use 2 strands of yarn held together throughout.
  2. Body is the same for all sizes, only sleeve length changes.

The body of the cardigan is one size fits all, with size variations in the sleeve length. Some versions simply call for worsted weight wool yarn rather than a specific yarn.
