Blue Sand Cardigan - IN PROGRESS

The Blue Sand Cardigan is a wonderful skill builder in the form of a beautiful, wearable sweater. You'll learn all kind of techniques, including German short rows (you'll be an expert!), raglan shaping, pockets and pocket linings, picking up and knitting a placket, and even an Icord bind-off! Wow! We're making it up in a soft, light cotton that will be a delight to wear in the Spring and Fall!

The Blue Sand Cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top down.  After completion of the yoke and the separation of the sleeves, the body is knitted from the armholes to the hemline in one piece.  The shaping of the longer back is achieved by short rows just before the textured hem and the pockets are worked.  The I-cord bind off continues from the neckline to the hem, and even includes the lining for the pockets for a neat and easy way to connect them to the hem.

For shoulders that flow naturally in a soft curving line that follows the shape of the body, the construction of the yoke combines a number of different methods and techniques.   The length of the sweater and certain increases and decreases can be adjusted to fit to your body type and preferences. Beautiful!
