If you loved my Knitty pattern Girl Friday, you’ll adore Sazerac. Named after the classic American cocktail, Sazerac is a relaxed fit cardigan with great details. Knit-in pockets, set-in cuffed sleeves, and a generous knit-in shawl collar. Body is knit in one piece to the armholes, and then split for fronts and back.
Shown in Lorna’s Laces Sportmate in colorway “Spats”. Sazerac uses a simple brioche variation combined with garter stitch, which work beautifully with multi-color yarns as well as solids.
