2 new green cardigan patterns!

Beaux Arts Cardigan from Knitting Architecture


Description from book:
“Cecily Glowik MacDonald’s buttontab-front cardigan is a wardrobe staple. Worked in one-piece to the armhole shaping, it sports elegant lace panels that flank the opening, bordered by a tidy I-cord edging. Slight waist shaping, ornate paneling, a garter stitch collar, and matching buttontabs against a background of simple stockinette stitch embrace the ideas that order and elegant details make for perfect harmony. These details call forth the Beaux Art movement’s love of symmetry.”

Yarn requirements: 5 (5, 6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 7, 8) skeins of Quince and Co. Osprey

Book is available through Interweave here:
