A sideways-knit cocoon cardigan with triangle panels and inserts, reminiscent of a ship at sail.

Hesperus is started at each cuff and worked towards the center, with the stitch pattern shifting across the front as the body progresses. The back is shaped with short rows and the whole piece is framed with a garter stitch edging. Techniques used: working flat, working in the round, increasing, decreasing, short rows, three needle bind off, and a very small amount of seaming.

Mohonk is now available in Jill’s store here, and will be at her booth at Maryland Sheep & Wool this weekend! She’ll be at Booth D-21, hosted by the lovely Jennie the Potter. Go say hi and snag some yarn!
