Cloud’s Rest Cardigan is a super fast knit with satisfying texture and a cozy shawl collar. This open front cardigan features an airy, bulky weight woolen-spun yarn, and is worked in pieces from the bottom up. Slight a-line shaping and set in sleeves create a classic look that pairs equally well over dresses or jeans. Try the vest option for a transitional layering piece that will take you into spring!

This pattern requires knowledge of basic cables, increasing, decreasing, picking up stitches, and seaming. All stitch patterns are fully written and fully charted so you can work with your preferred method. Detailed schematic and measurement table is included, along with a seaming diagram to guide you through each step of final construction.

Suggested Yarn: Brooklyn Tweed Quarry, or other bulky weight yarn that knits to gauge
