Provence, one of our signature yarns, is a mercerized Egyptian cotton that knits into a strong and beautiful fabric. Egyptian cotton has two qualities that make it a great cotton yarn: a very long staple (fiber) length and a small diameter. The long staple gives the yarn strength and sheen; and the delicate diameter means that it spins into a soft, smooth yarn.


Worked from the top down, a ring of leaves circle the yoke of this cardigan. Once the leaf chart is worked, the remainder of the sweater is a breeze in stockinette and garter stitch. Knit in mercerized cotton Provence, this cardigan will stand up to many wearings and will be outgrown and ready to hand down before it is worn out.
