This casual-look v-neck cardigan is set to become a contemporary classic. It is knitted in a chunky twist yarn in tones of ecru and soft gray. The yarn is a blend of merino wool and alpaca, which gives a great texture to the simple stockinette stitch fabric, although it would work in any chunky yarn. To give some interest to this otherwise plain garment, a small pocket and double-ended zipper have been added. The pattern for this cardigan is given in two sizes, which is fairly oversized and so perfect for layering.
