Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Fall 2008: “The Afterthought Darts Cardigan fits perfectly on everyone: Waist darts are applied after knitting, creating a boned look and made-to-measure-fit. Theresa Schabes uses chunky edgings and buttons to contrast with the delicate, feminine look. A light, lace mohair yarn turns plain stockinette into a fluid, unusual layering fabric.”

Needles: Sizes 9 (5.5 mm) and 10½ (6.5 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
