Worked in a fabulously sexy alpaca and silk blend yarn in a deceptively simple slip stitch pattern, this snuggly houndstooth cardigan will make you look smart and chic, all at the same time. With an oversized shawl collar worked with doubled yarn in squishy Fisherman’s Rib, and sneaky afterthought pockets, the beauty of this garment is in all the details! Easy, slip-stitch colorwork means you’ll only be working with one color per row. This 6-page, full color PDF has 1 small photo within the pattern and the remainder of the photos on the cover page.
