Marlaina "Marly" Bird fled the world of financial services to launch her Yarn Thing podcast and hasn't looked back since. To Marly, a bi-craftsy girl who both knits and crochets, the yarn is the star, not how you work with it. She's creative director for Bijou Basin Ranch Yarns and the co-author of Curvy Crochet (Leisure Arts, 2011). You've seen her designs in Knit Simple, Interweave Crochet, Knitscene, Inside Crochet, Wild Fiber and Petite Purls, and in the books Perfectly Plus and Knitting Plus. In her spare time she raises three kids in suburban Denver.

This trendy cardigan/jacket is the perfect addition to the fall wardrobe. Subtle asymmetrical front and larger collar coupled with the thumb holes in the cuffs are wonderful compliments to this stockinette stitch piece.
Make this piece your own...take my Craftsy class, Curvy Knits, to learn how to adjust the pattern to really fit you!
