Pattern Description:

Inspired by the Italian provenance of the Volute yarn used for the design sample, this men's zippered cardigan has a European flair. The asymmetrical fronts, long cuffs, and oversized cowl collar derive straight from men's runway fashion, while the fitted shoulders, hip shaping, and roomy body flatter the masculine silhouette.

Volute is a cotton/acrylic blend that will be available soon from Yarns of Italy. It has a soft, velour-like hand that makes it a pleasure to work with and wear. The garment also has a nearly seamless construction for an easy finish.

My mom taught me to knit when I was 12, but I really went gaga for crafting in grad school -- so much so that I've changed careers from history professor to full-time knitting designer, teacher, and writer!
