Ready for a challenge? Trailhead is toothsome knitting with eye-catching results. This A-line raglan cardigan features twin strands of diamonds forking upward from the back hem. The fronts are in stockinette with handsome pockets for trailside treasures; the back is emblazoned with a dramatic V of reverse stockinette to show off cables filled with moss stitch. All pieces are knit flat, and an unusual shaping scheme provides a tailored fit around the shoulders but also means you’ll need your wits about you as you work the back and yoke. The double-ribbed collar and button bands are worked on stitches picked up from the neck edge and the fronts; wear the collar turned up or down. Trailhead is knit in Loft held double for a dense, outerwear fabric—you may want to consider choosing two different hues for a marled effect.
