Named for the Greek word for rock, Lithos is a structured cardigan that forms the cable and garter elements of the collar together with the gently shaped raglan body. The unusual construction begins by working the wide braided cable and garter collar from the center back neck toward each shoulder, then stitches are picked up around the collar edge and integrated into the cabled fronts, while being worked seamlessly from the top down in one piece to the hem. The organic cable appears to travel around the front edge and neckline from one end to the other, although each side is worked from the top to the bottom. A traditional cardigan with contemporary construction, Lithos is sturdy and reliable on cold days.

Techniques & Skills Used: raglan construction, knit/purl, increasing/decreasing, picking up stitches, cables.
