Apogee is a top-down v-neck cardigan with a wide collar and toggle closures. It is worked from the top-down, back and forth in one piece, with sleeves worked in the round. The raglan shaping incloses a cable, which travels down the body to create waist shaping, and back up the arm for a fun sleeve detail. Cables flow organically into the ribbing. It's the perfect boyfriend-style cardigan, and includes traditional and tall lengths (5'10" - 6'6"). (The sample design was knit to fit a 38" bust, 6' tall.)
Yardage for tall sizes: 1100 - 1980 yds (1006 - 1811 m).
Yardage for standard sizes: 1100-1320 yds.
Both are estimates; please check the return policy of your LYS, and consider purchasing an extra skein if you are taller than 6' 2" and concerned about running out.
18 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in in stockinette st worked flat on larger needles
