Pattern Description:

This sleeveless cardigan was designed give you a fashionable extra layer during those days that don't seem as springy as they should. It is pictured above with a knitted tie, giving it a tailored and clean cut look. It can also be worn without the tie and secured with a simple shawl pin to create a more relaxed look.

The entire garment is knit in one octagonal shaped piece with only a single seam. The dramatic collar is created when the upper side of the octagon is folded over the shoulders. The body is primarily stockinette, but the interesting shape of the garment and the reversible cabled border make it a fascinating project for the knitter who is far too easily bored.

It is knit up in Berroco Remix, a yarn I've fallen madly in love with for fall and spring knitting. For one, it's completely recycled, which just makes me happy to know I'm helping to steward the earth's resources well. Secondly, the fiber blend is unusual but wonderful. Cotton, acrylic, silk, nylon and linen combine to create a worsted weight yarn that adds warmth without feeling overly bundled up and wintery.
