Land of the Silver Birch is a round-necked, saddle-shoulder cardigan with no seaming. Sleeves are picked up from the saddle shoulders and knit to the cuffs. It’s got a little lace on the sleeves and seam lines; the design was kept simple so the beauty of the luscious BFL/Silk yarn could be the star of the show.
