Discovering a winning yarn combination is like hitting a gold ore. For the Cozy Winter cardigan, I hit just such a winning combination: A woolly aran weight yarn in a neutral color held together with a variegated mohair lace weight yarn. The variegation in the lace yarn gives just a hint of colorful structure to the semisolid base yarn, and the mohair gives everything the most gorgeous halo!
Together with the generous size of this cardigan, I feel perfectly shielded against colder weather.

Cozy Winter is a cozy, simple cardigan in a subtle stitch pattern, worked from the top down. First the neck band is worked, stitches are picked up along it and the back is worked flat to the underarms. Then stitches are picked up for the front, which are worked to the underarms before joining with the back for the remainder of the body. For the sleeves, stitches are picked up along the armhole edge, and the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down.
