“Wheatsheaves” is a top-down no-sew design with a lot of ease. When worn with a shawl pin, either at the top of the neck or at the bottom of the front border, the slight crossover causes the kimono shape to drape quite attractively. When worn unclosed, the back flares to create a flatteringly graceful line. Apart from the provisional cast-on and a few short rows to slope the shoulders, the knitting is straightforward and quick. Choose a wool with an airy spin and perhaps a bit of alpaca or mohair to maintain the light, feminine feel of this cardigan. Takes approximately 850 (1000, 1150, 1300, 1450, 1600) yds of chunky-weight yarn.
