Beyond the Wild Wood is a wrap yourself in comfort cardigan to live in.

It’s another Ziggurat and like all Ziggurats is knitted:

  • in one piece
  • top-down
  • seamless
  • shoulders, sleeve caps, and frontbands knitted in one sweep
  • built-in slanted pockets
  • set-in sleeves are knitted in the round
  • optional bust darts (four sizes from Smallish to Wowza!)
  • collar can be worn up or down
  • photo tutorial for the pocket

The pockets are knitted in similar fashion to those on Messing About in Boats, but are slanted and quite on the sly.

A fisherman’s rib collar, hem, and arched cuff add interesting texture and structure.

The flaring rib collar is knitted on last, as are the last few rows of pocket lining.

Not a seam in sight. Honest.

Number of skeins: 7 (7, 7, 8, 8) 9, 9, 9, 10, 10

Approximate yardage:
1190 (1260, 1330, 1410, 1490) 1570, 1640, 1710, 1790, 1850 m
1300 (1380, 1460, 1550, 1640) 1720, 1810, 1870, 1960, 2030 yds

Note: The sample in size 38 was knitted with exactly 7 skeins – buy an extra skein as suggested to be safe. Alternatively, make the cardigan a little shorter.
