A classic cardigan with a modern shape, worsted pour moi, looks great on everyone. Knit in one of my favorite worsted weight yarns, The Fibre Company’s Canopy Worsted, worsted pour moi has a graduated hem from the back to the front bands, an A-line shape and a wide front band. It is comfortable and becoming on virtual all body types, so it has quickly become my go-to sweater -- nearly every day! My tech editor described pour moi as, “an attractive modern sweater that is easy to knit and wearable anytime, anywhere and any season.”
