Originally knit as the Semi-Mysterious Sweater, in a knitalong hosted in the Kate Jackson Knits ravelry group. Clues were released every two weeks, from January 25 through March 22, 2013.

A fitted, textured cardigan can be the perfect compliment to jeans or a dress, and a constant companion through the seasons. This bottom-up seamless raglan incorporates lace, cables, and more for a rich visual and tactile texture. Use any worsted weight yarn in a solid color; cool cotton blends for Spring, and warm wool blends for Fall.
