I designed this lovely cardigan with comfort and wearability in mind. It’s perfect for wearing to work or for Saturday errands. I shaped and sized it for male wearers but it would be lovely on any body. I wanted something that my husband would actually wear but was also interesting to knit.

The name of this piece pays homage to a certain mining game that has captured the heart of everyone in my home (including myself). The color of this yarn along with the texture put me in the mind of β€˜The Nether’- a dark and brooding dimension within the game. And yes, I’m planning kids sizes too.

Details: The cardigan is worked as a top down raglan with a stand up collar. Stripes of smooth stockinette are alternated with slipped stitch sections that give a textured but sleek look. The hem and sleeves are finished with 3x2 ribbing. There is optional back shaping to give the sweater a more tailored look as shown in the samples. This design is suitable for an adventurous beginner.
