Barberry is a v-neck hoodie cardigan that features twisted stitch panels on fronts and back and twisted rib bands at the fronts, hood, cuffs and hem. With eight sizes designed for a 28 - 58” bust, Barberry Adult will fit a wide range of sizes ranging from petite to plus, and its companion piece Barberry Child is designed for five sizes to fit toddlers to teens.

Construction
Barberry is knit flat from the bottom up in one piece to the armholes, and then divided to work fronts and back/hood separately. The hood extends from the back neck to preserve the continuity of the cable, and is seamed at the sides of the hood. Stitches for the button band are then picked up worked around the fronts and hood.
