Cardigan is featured on the cover of this issue of Interweave Knits.
Pattern description from Interweave Knits, Spring 2008: “The Holly Jacket makes a classic silhouette feel fresh again: Flared elbow-length sleeves, chunky buttons, and a wide boatneck add up to a flirty jacket ideal for cool spring days. Theresa Schabes knits lustrous silk entirely in reverse stockinette to create a richly textured, damask-like fabric. Rapid decreases and a gauge change at the true waist create an A-line shape with a softly gathered effect.”
