This pullover version of my Port Townsend Swing Cardigan features a V-neck, long set-in sleeves, and an A-line silhouette.

It’s an ideal layer that spans multiple seasons. The swing shape is achieved by mirrored increases worked at the canter back. The sweater is worked from the top down following an adaption of the basic set-in sleeve construction instructions in The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters.

The yarn, Colinton Australia Lace Blends, is a luxurious blend of 80% fine mohair and 20% silk that is hand-dyed in Australia and exclusively distributed in the U.S. by The Bazaar Girls Yarn Emporium (bazaargirls.com) in Port Townsend, Washington.

Instructions are provided for a total of nine sizes: 34 (37 1/2, 41, 44 1/2, 48) (50 3/4, 54 1/2, 57 3/4, 60 3/4)“ (86.5 95, 104, 113, 122 cm) bust circumference. The sweater shown measures 41” (104 cm).
