Skill Level: Intermediate

This loose-fitting, slightly slouchy cardigan is super soft yet durable thanks to the combination of a Merino wool held double with a fingering weight mohair/silk blend for strength.

The cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom up, and the button bands are worked as you go, so there is minimal finishing. Yarn is held double throughout. This pattern has no charts.

Sample is 40”/101.5cm; model is 32”/81cm bust
