From the Book

A basic cardigan with a zipper closure knitted in a self-striping yarn that gives a variegated color effect, which adds visual interest to the otherwise simple stocking stitch. The finishing touches come in the form of the rib stitch detailing at the side seams, on the patch pockets and the neat “cyclist” collar.
