Pattern Description from Cast On, February-April 2010: “The slip stitch pattern used on the bodice and upper sleeves are a simple way to add color and texture to a classic cardigan. The scoop neck adds a modern touch. A slip stitch stripe against a Stockinette base work together on the body and sleeves of this pretty cardigan to create textural interest. The Eco-Cotton Blend is a recycled cotton and acrylic mix.”
