This asymmetrical cardigan features a ruched front edge, ruffled trim, V-neck, waist shaping, and set-in sleeves. An unusual alpaca yarn is used to great effect in a structured but draped sweater. (Interweave)

Ed. note: The description of this pattern on the Interweave Web site calls for a size 10 needle but shows the 10 as 6.5 mm size. That’s why both US 10 and US 10.5 are listed, since the 10.5 is actually the 6.5 mm equivalent.

Finished Size: 32 (36, 40, 44, 47, 50)” bust circumference. Sweater shown measures 36”, modeled with 2” positive ease.

Yarn: Rowan Lima (84% alpaca, 8% merino, 8% nylon; 109 yd [100 m]/50 g): #884 Cusco (purple heather), 7 (8, 9, 10, 11, 12) skeins. Yarn distributed by Westminster Fibers.

Yarn weight: #4 - Medium

Gauge: 16 sts and 22 rows = 4” in St st.

Needles: Size 10” (6.5 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Five 7/8” buttons; stitch holders; tapestry needle.
