Under Wraps Cardigan
Part cardigan, part wrap; this European inspired asymmetrical garment is sure to have others take notice while wrapping you in style & warmth. Primarily knit in stockinette stitch, a simple eyelet edge provides an interesting finish.
Lightweight yarn knit at a loose gauge gives the Under Wraps Cardigan an airy, flowing drape great for wrapping around your shoulders. Using a provisional crochet cast on and with the assistance of Magic Loop, the entire garment is knit without a single seam. Once the knitting is completed, finishing takes only a few minutes.
The flexibility of this cardigan makes it versatile enough to suit a wide range of body styles. It is perfect for casual Saturday shopping trips and dressy enough to wear over evening wear and a must-have piece for expectant or nursing mothers. If desired, the length and width of the wrap can be altered to make the wrap portion larger or smaller (may affect yarn yardage needed).
The cardigan is designed to use either a fingering (Tosh Merino Light) or sport (Pashmina) weight yarn knit at the same finished gauge. Since both yarns blocked gauges are quite different than their pre-blocked gauges, it is crucial that a gauge swatch be completed and wet-blocked prior to beginning in order to ensure the final blocked garment will match the intended size.
