The Mercantile Cardigan is a magical, reversible make that will soon become your go-to sweater. Is it striped? Is it solid? Is it knitting? Is it crochet? By using basic Tunisian crochet skills and two yarns, you’ll be able to make a sweater that looks unlike anything else in your handmade wardrobe.

While the “wrong side” of Tunisian simple stitch really shines in this simple silhouette, the sweater is actually reversible. Wear it with the regular front side of Tunisian simple stitch facing out for more distinct stripes or choose the backside of the fabric for a look that resembles knit garter stitch.

Pattern involves very little counting, minimal seaming and lots of helpful video and photo tutorial support.
