After having made “Naturally Yours” last year in collaboration with De Rerum Natura, I decided to revisit this lovely and versatile yarn and design another open front cardigan (…my favorite type of sweater!).
“Crossing over” is worked top down and seamless (…my favorite construction method for sweaters!), starting from the wide collar, followed by the yoke and the body.
The back in an easy to knit half brioche stitch pattern features an interesting shaping detail based on an updated version of the shaping used in my “Wien” pullover, with a larger back crossing that moves first “up” and then “down”, where in “Wien” it meandered only in one direction.
This comfortable and laid-back cardigan will add interest to any casual outfit!

IMPORTANT NOTE! French version of the pattern is available exclusively through De Rerum Natura Website.
