Product description

“Fall marks a return to seamless sweaters, the sartorial answer to blankets and afghans. When there’s a chill in the air, we welcome a project that warms us as it grows. Likewise, Feather is a cardigan made for wrapping oneself in. Its generous proportions and drape are belied by the tailored silhouette at the shoulders, where the saddle sleeves and the eased back meet. The wide cable and openwork feather motif adorning the front edges travels all the way to the center back, framing the face.” – Véronik Avery

    15 January 2014: (Version 1.1):  

    On Page 6, under Shape Shoulders, additional information as been added to the Note as follows: “Note: On the two smallest sizes, the second last shoulder decrease stitch will align with the purl column on either side of the patterned front band; continue to purl stitches through this column.Work the final decrease so that the purl column is maintained. You will have 26 stitches remaining in the front panels: continue to work the first/last 25 stitches as charted, and maintain the purl column in place next to the marker. You will have eliminated one stitch from the panel (the next-to-last stitch).“
