What could be better than a cozy cardi in a super soft yarn? Slightly oversized with a splash of color at the hem and cuffs, Endpapers combines style and comfort in this open-front, top-down cardigan. The colorwork pattern is a slip-stitch pattern, a technique in which only one color is worked in each row. It’s a perfect way to get started in colorwork without stranding.

The cardigan is worked in one piece from the top down. Once the yoke is complete, sleeve stitches are put on waste yarn and the body is worked flat to the bottom hem. Sleeves are then worked in the round. Stitches for the front band are picked up and knit.

The Telegraph hat uses the same stitch patterns. You can practice on the hat and then “graduate” to the cardigan.

The slip-stitch pattern is both written and charted.

NEEDLES
• US 6 4mm circular needles for body and sleeves*
• US 4 3.5mm circular needles for ribbing*

* It is recommended to have various lengths of circular needles on hand. As the yoke increases are worked, the length of your circular needle may need to be adjusted to accommodate changing numbers of stitches worked back and forth. For the sleeves, any method of working in the round (double-pointed needles, two circulars or a long circular for magic loop) may be used. A long circular in the smaller size is required to work the collar and front bands all in one piece..
