Inspired by cabin living in coastal Maine, Cedarwood strikes a perfect balance between rustic and refined. A gentle A-line shape and open fronts of stockinette allowed to curl gracefully under form the ground for an elongated OXO motif rendered in transitions from stockinette to garter stitch. The cardigan begins with the provisionally cast-on collar; stitches are picked up along one long edge and from both live ends to work the sinuous raglan yoke from the top down. Stitches are placed on hold for the sleeves while the body is completed, and then the sleeves are worked circularly to the cuffs. The hem and cuffs are worked in half-twisted rib and finished with a tubular bind-off. Knit in a warm neutral shade of Shelter like Barn Owl, versatile Cedarwood can be dressed up or down to complement almost any outfit.
