Willingdon is constructed bottom-up and seamlessly with an easy, no-sew, no-graft method of underarm closure (link to tutorial included). A wide shawl collar, shaped with German short rows, frames the face. The stitch pattern is simple to memorize, and the wool is soft, chunky, and drapey. Both the knitting and wearing are soothing.
Use the bust measurement closest to your hip measurement when selecting a size. The cardigan is meant to end at the top of the hip.
Takes 2 (2, 2, 3, 3) skeins of Eco+ or Ecological Wool.
