PATTERN DETAILS

Named for the vibrant colorwork in the art of Lisa Congdon, this cardigan has clean lines that provide the perfect canvas for a riot of color on the front band, but would be equally striking knit in a bright color with a monochromatic band. The bands snap closed using snap tape. Buy commercial snap tape, or make your own by sewing snaps to colorful grosgrain ribbon before attaching to the sweater.

I started sewing when I was a toddler on one of those drilled out boards where you use a shoelace and sew the outline of a fish or a duck. Once I could wield scissors I started sewing dresses for my dolls. I added crochet when I was 8, cross stitching when I was 10, beading at 11, and knitting at 16. And I started binding books in college.
