Product description

Worked in both chunky weight Quarry and DK weight Arbor yarns, the Normandale cardigan is a feat in design ingenuity. Knit flat in one piece to the underarms, each row of the main body is worked using just one color with stitches of the other color slipped along the way to create a nubbly mosaic motif reminiscent of Portland’s many bridges. Slightly sloping shoulders and no body shaping make Normandale an excellent cardigan for wearers of any gender. A shawl collar worked in brioche stitch adds extra oomph to this standout design.
