PATTERN DETAILS

Nyx (Greek for "night", dark like the jet colored yarn) is an asymmetric cardigan inspired by the look of a classic motorcycle jacket. A softened version of the leather perfecto, Nyx features a ribbed collar, long sleeves, and a little pocket for tucking away your winter essentials. The look of the sweater can easily be changed by how it is buttoned and whether the collar is worn standing up or folded down. Construction is simple: Nyx is knit from the top down in one piece with a raglan yoke and waist shaping at the sides. The button bands are worked along with the rest of the piece, making for minimal finishing work.
