This cardigan takes full advantage of the beautiful gradient yarns currently being produced by hand dyers. Worked from the center of the back out the zigzag stitch pattern allows the colors to blend together. The front uses short rows to turn the corner, creating a wonderful curved front and works in garter up to the folding collar. Top down set-in short row sleeves finish the cardigan.
While perfect for a gradient yarn this would work equally well in a variegated or semi-solid yarn.
