PATTERN DETAILS

Zen (squared) is a sequel to Zen (or comfort food for the body). This basic cardigan with slightly oversized front panels and detailed edging is so inviting that you will want to wrap yourself in it while puttering around the house. Yet it is polished enough to wear to work or on errands. It is knit in a hand-dyed merino/silk/cashmere blend, making it soft enough to be enticing and durable enough to have for many years. CONSTRUCTION Knit in on piece from the top-down. Stitches are picked up along front edges and neckline and front bands are worked before blocking.
