Designed for using a few skeins of those special hand-dyed 4ply/ fingering yarns, this cardigan is made with knit-as-you-go finishing and an unusual construction, beginning at the centre-upper back and growing around the body for a slouchy, oversized fit and a cropped length.

This project is a special collaboration with one of my favourite yarn dyers: Helen of The Wool Kitchen dyes beautiful yarns and I am so pleased to have used her gorgeous Blackstar colour way for this sweater.

NOTE: This cardigan is meant to be oversized. I am modelling the large size and I have a 91 cm/36 inch bust.
