Paprika is a part of my Spice Girls series of cardigans designed for everyday wear, and as a part of the Spice Collection, Paprika brings a little unique spice all of its own.

Paprika features some simple cables that look intricate but are very easy to execute, a hood, and interesting closures. It is completely seamless; it is knit from top down and requires very minimal finishing. Paprika is worked flat apart from 2 rows to finish the sleeves.

I have used an amazing technique developed by Susie Myers, contiguous set-in sleeves, that allows shoulder shaping and creating set-in sleeves without using short rows. Sleeves are worked at the same time as the rest of the vest.

Written instructions are very detailed (32 pages!), and are broken into a few size groups. Please read the pattern, and to save ink and paper print only what you need for your size.
