Relax on the porch with a mug of hot cider after you’ve raked the last of the leaves. This simple, slouchy cardigan is a breezy knit, just right for autumn evenings, and a great way to play with fall accent colors. Cristina Ghirlanda chose to work Shelter with larger needles to give the finished garment lots of drape and swing. Corbara is worked seamlessly from the lower back; the fronts are added with increases. The piece is divided at the armholes and the back and fronts are worked separately, with short rows shaping the shoulders before they’re united with a joinery bind off. Stitches for the set-in sleeves are picked up and worked in short rows, then knit around down to the cuffs. The garter stitch contrast border is picked up and worked last of all. Corbara is designed for lots of positive ease to work comfortably as your outermost layer; we’ve styled it with 10”.
