Here’s a true study in mixed textures.

This cocoon-style cardigan prominently features a gorgeous open lace panel in the back.

Then, ribbed dolman sleeves are knit out from the sides of the back panel to provide a tailored contrast and create the cocoon shape.

A striking, yet delicate, banana leaf panel embellishes both the shaped shawl collar and the optional sleeve cuffs.

This is a conversation-starting piece that will give you a variety of stitches and techniques to work on and combine for a gratifying result.

Sample is knit up in Berroco Ultra Alpaca – a yarn that gives spectacular stitch definition with enough softness and color sophistication to carry off this design.
