The Mendel sweater pattern is made with Cascade Heritage fingering weight yarn and is knit with a loose gauge to produce a flattering, lightweight and stretchy material. Knit in the round from the bottom up, the ruches and hem are created as you knit. The open draped neckline, ruched hemline and sleeves create a dramatic effect that is very flattering.
