This dazzling v-neck cardigan is an undeniable showstopper. The design features a graphic all-over stranded colorwork motif that is worked in the round and steeked. Except for the edging, the entire cardigan is worked from a chart, however the rhythmic motif is very easy to memorize. In fact, you’ll probably find yourself referring to the chart only periodically. The cardigan is worked seamlessly from the bottom-up, with a beautiful tapering yoke-style shoulder construction.

If you want to learn how to steek, watch this video on YouTube and see a time-lapsed video of Tiber being steeked.
