Product description

“The incredibly simple construction of this cardigan allows it to be worn two different ways: length-wise, or cropped with a dramatic collar. I paired this wonderfully interesting silhouette with a simple, geometric waffle stitch and a rolled stockinette opening. It hangs beautifully in either style – knitter’s choice!” – Michele Wang

  • Pattern Updates

    7 March 2013: (Version 1.1): Although technically correct, some language in the original version of the pattern was confusing some knitters, so we have revised each paragraph under Rows 1 and 2 of each section with some additional clarifying language. On page 7 the WS Row instructions for the {TSSS}, a portion of the instructions that does not apply has been removed as follows: “WS Rows: With yarn held in back, slip first stitch of row as if to knit, bring yarn to front between needles. Work as instructed by pattern until 1 stitch remains in row (this is the second selvedge stitch of row), purl the last stitch.” (WS rows are sometimes knit and sometimes purled in Stowe’s stitch pattern.)
