Intro: “Wanderlust” is a simple but beautiful little cardigan for that very special baby. It is worked back and forth, top-down and seamless, with a picked up garter button band and a bit of garter at the bottom of the sleeves and body. The yoke is a lovely lattice pattern and the sleeves are ¾ length. Beautiful in Springtree Road’s Coquina DK, this is a fun and satisfying knit.
The yoke requires slipping sts, passing sts over, p3tog, yo.
