Stella is a basic scoop neck cardigan knitted almost seamlessly. The bottom is knit with two strands of Habu’s stainless held together, the top is one strand of stainless with one strand cotton gima. The fun part of the stainless is that you can manipulate the fabric but the pattern would translate perfectly to other sport or dk weight yarns.
