Whenever I visit Rhinebeck, NY for the annual Sheep and Wool Festival, I look forward to shopping in the village. On my 2013 trip, I purchased a mohair-blend crossover cardigan with ties at the front, even though I didn’t really love the way the ties hung down when it was worn open. So, “Perth” was my solution—a lightweight, airy, drapey little cardigan to wear dressed up or down that looks great open or closed. This is an updated version of the original pattern, now designed for a merino fingering-weight yarn. Sleeves can be full or three-quarter length. Takes 4 (5, 5, 6, 7) balls, but you may want to purchase extra yardage if you are taller than average.
