DETAILS
I often begin the design process by turning to my closet and looking for gaps in my wardrobe. For years I have been wanting a pull-on-over-anything jacket style cardigan with wide sleeves and easy worn-open style. But make it fashion - with a marled back drop and color changing mosaic colorwork!

This cardigan is knit from the bottom up, seamlessly except for underarms. The body and yoke are worked flat and the sleeves are picked up and knit in the round. The colorwork is achieved using the Mosaic knitting method.

YARN REQUIREMENTS
These are just approximations. Total yarn usage will depend on the yarn you use (fiber content, ply, etc.), your personal gauge, and any modifications you may make.

100% Worsted Weight Wool in 2 colors (75 g/150 yds/135 m)

MC - 521 (595, 621, 671, 731)(787, 837, 900, 940) g/1040 (1190, 1240, 1341, 1460)(1574, 1672, 1800, 1880) yds/952 (1088, 1134, 1225, 1335)(1438, 1530, 1646, 1719) m

CC - 264 (300, 315, 340, 370)(400, 424, 450, 476) g/528 (600, 630, 680, 741)(800, 850, 900, 954) yds/483 (550, 575, 623, 678)(732, 777, 823, 873) m

SUGGESTED YARN
For this cardigan I chose worsted weight wool yarn. The main color is a non-superwash, 3-color marl, while the second color is a yarn that slowly changes color throughout the skein, adding a lot of depth to the colorwork.
