Missed Connection

Where: the coffee house on Robie Street

When: Thursday evening, up to dark

You: drank a cappuccino in a white porcelain cup, a spoon laid quietly in its saucer; read Mrs Dalloway with an ever-blunter pencil in hand; crossed and uncrossed your legs as you looked out the window, darkening; dressed in a short-sleeved cardigan the color of old pennies. Where you sat the music from the speakers softened. When you left it trailed out the double doors as if to catch you.

A lightweight cardigan knit in soothing stockinette with garter rib trim and cozy pockets. Short sleeves make it perfect for layering over a tank or a long-sleeved turtleneck, making it a great transitional piece. Sample calls for one button with a snap underneath but you can use as many buttons as you like. For best results, use a yarn with a nice drape - merino with silk and/or cashmere or superwash merinos are good choices.

Construction is the same basic simplified version of Barbara Walker’s top-down seamless simultaneous set-in sleeve construction used in Sun Rose but with short-rows to shape the shoulder slopes. No seaming - not even for the pockets!
