“This cozy cardigan is equally suited for curling up at home in your PJ’s, or for a stylish, layered look while on the go. The body is adorned with classic knit-and-purl patterns—moss stitch punctuated with chevron insertions—while the button bands and shawl collar are worked in a supple English Rib pattern (also known as “half brioche” stitch).
The garment is partially seamless, from hem/cuff to underarm. The raglan yoke for each piece is then worked flat and seamed upon completion. These seams offer strength and structure to the yoke area of the garment, which sees more stress from wear than other areas of the body. The button band and shawl collar are worked at a significantly denser gauge than the rest of the garment for a polished finish; for this reason, the band and collar are knit separately on a smaller needle and attached to the body during finishing.”– Jared Flood
