Product description

Welcome the chilly weather in a stunning cabled cardigan that will anchor your wardrobe in the colder months. Charley’s thickets of knotwork and lattice cables are ventilated with eyelets that visually lighten the garment. The vertical flow of the cable and moss stitch panels is accentuated by purl gutters that create flattering lines. A roomy fit makes Charley a cozy outer layer and lets the dense fabric of Arbor hang beautifully; waist shaping neatly controls the volume of the piece. Sewn construction, simple raglan sleeve caps with fashioned decreases, a precisely shaped shawl collar with a subtle rib detail, and tubular bind-offs add to the polished effect. The deep V fronts are designed to hang open for casual elegance, and the twisted-rib cuffs are worked long so you can fold them back.

    Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.

    *Knitter’s preferred style of needle may be used for most pieces. A very long circular needle is required for the collar due to the large number of stitches.
