The Cedar Ledge Cardigan is part of my Spring 2018 Remarkable Yarns Collection: a set of four sweater patterns and three accessories designed to work equally well with both Rosy Green Wool and Crave Yarns Caravan.

It’s a classic V-neck drop shoulder cardigan with a fun gansey-inspired texture trimming the sleeves and sweater body. It’s trimmed in chunky 4×4 ribbing, which makes a nice match for the cardigan’s lightweight gauge.

On Sizing
Intended to be worn with 4-8” (10 – 20.5 cm) of positive ease through the bust or upper torso; shown with approximately 6” (12.5 cm) of positive ease through the upper torso.

Materials
The Cedar Ledge Cardigan, like the rest of the Remarkable Yarns spring 2018 collection, is meant to work equally well with two yarns:

  • Rosy Green Wool Cheeky Merino Joy 100% Virgin Wool, Organic Merino Extra Fine; machine washable 350 yds / 320 m per 100g

  • Crave Yarns Caravan 70%SW Fine Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Camel, 10% Mulberry Silk 354 yards / 324 m per 100g

The gauge and yardage requirements are identical for either yarn. Sample is shown in Cheeky Merino Joy in color “Cornish Slate”: 4 (4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6, 7) hanks

Construction
Cedar Ledge is worked in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed, with a drop-shoulder sleeve.
