The double-fronted Petrichor Cardigan is perfect for wrapping up on a gray day. Although it appears to be cabled, the stitch pattern is worked using simple decreases and twisted yarn overs, with isolated purl stitches creating a texture like raindrops on dusty soil. An I-cord edging adds a sleek, polished touch to the entire sweater. Worked seamlessly from the top down with raglan shaping, this flattering cardigan is easy to customize in sleeve and body length.
