This fitted cardigan is constructed in pieces from the bottom up, with set-in sleeves. Deep twisted 1x1 ribbing trims the hem and sleeve cuffs. The button bands and neck edging are picked up and knitted after the piece is seamed.
The Fibre Company’s Canopy Worsted is a luscious blend of alpaca, wool, and bamboo, and has both drape and shine that make this dressier cardigan a great work staple. You’ll need approximately 7 (8, 9, 10, 10, 12, 12, 13, 15, 16) hanks.
