One of the pieces in my designer collection for the Fall 2011 issue of Knitscene magazine, the The Cooke Cardigan is an elegant, easy to wear cardigan that goes effortlessly from day to night. Waist shaping on the back of the cardigan keeps it flattering and stylish; the shaping is omitted on the front for a clean drape. The herringbone pattern adds a subtle touch of texture without overpowering the sheen of the bamboo in The Fibre Company’s Canopy Worsted.

It and my other patterns from the designer collection are available in the Fall 2011 issue of Knitscene.
