Product description

Decidedly urban and minimalist, the Osier cardigan combines modern drape with rustic tweedy texture in woolen-spun Shelter yarn. Deep ribbing edged in garter stitch forms wide bands in front and a standing collar in back. The textured stitch pattern, comprised of simple knits and purls, sings in Osier’s simple silhouette. In both cropped and longer length variations, with an open front and roomy side pockets, Osier is a sophisticated wardrobe workhorse for everyday wear.

This garment is worked flat in one piece from the bottom up to the underarms, then the fronts and back are worked separately. The shoulders are joined using Invisible Weaving. Sleeve stitches are picked up from the armhole edge, then worked circularly to the cuff. Stitches for the front bands and collar are picked up and worked flat on a circular needle. The first inch of the pocket linings are worked first, then set aside. When the body of the cardigan reaches the start of the pocket, the pocket linings are joined and worked with the body. The pocket fronts are then worked to the same height and joined to the pocket linings.
