PATTERN DETAILS

This cardigan is like a breath of spring - almost lighter than air, as it is knit at a loose gauge. It is the perfect coverup for a spring day or a cool summer evening. La Gran mohair yarn is an ideal yarn choice for the sweater, as the brushed mohair fills in the stitches just enough to soften the loose gauge, and the yarn's strength ensures that the fabric will wear well. For a smoother look, try Lily Chin's Tribeca, which happens to be my personal favorite, and which I wear every spring! The Tribeca sample has the higher v-neck tie. The La Gran sample has the lower v-neck tie - your choice. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, k2tog, p2tog, p2togb, ssk, m1, ch, sc, dc3tog, tc4tog - explained in Abbreviations.
