This pattern has been substantially altered from the original to allow the knitter to use ANY yarn and work it up in ANY size. This is a universal pattern.
The body of this cardigan is knit in a circle from the center back outward. The "stained glass" effect--alternate garter-stitch stripes and two-stitch color changes with floats on the right side--is achieved with Lorna's Laces' "Shepherd Worsted" and piped with mohair-blend "Grace" boucle, also from Lorna's Laces.
The sweater moonlights as a shrug when worn with the shorter side on the bottom; the longer side folds into a dramatic shawl collar.
There is NO gauge required for this sweater. No matter what needle size or yarn weight you use, this pattern will WORK.

Taught to crochet by a family friend at age 7, I didn't take up knitting until I was 25 and then I did so with a passion and a vengeance!
