Harbor Village Cardigan

$8.00

Harbor Village is an easy-to-fit, easy-to-wear cardigan for when you need a quick bit of warmth. Roomy, gathered pockets are perfect for snuggling, and am allover vertical lace pattern keeps things light. I've used an obscenely soft fingering-weight wool-yak blend for the sample, but it would look great in a wool-silk blend as well.

Description

I designed Harbor Village for the 2017 make. wear. love. fall retreat, with yarn from our vendor Yarn Culture. Patti has exceptional taste, and getting to sample her perfectly-curated yarns is one of my favorite parts of designing the retreat collection each year.

This year, we selected the aptly-named ‘Delirium’ from Periwinkle Sheep, in the color “Vintage Blue”. You’ll need 4 (4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 7) hanks of Delirium for the sizes 30 1/2 (31 1/2, 32 1/2, 35 3/4, 36 3/4, 40, 43 1/4, 44 1/4, 48 1/2, 49 1/2, 53 3/4, 58 1/4)” / 77.5 (80, 82.5, 91, 93.5, 101.5, 110, 112.5, 123, 125.5, 136.5, 148) cm.

The cardigan’s construction is unusual; it’s worked in three pieces from the bottom up. The sleeve stitches are added to the body in a series of COs, forming a gentle dolman under the arms. You’ll join the fronts to the back with a 3-needle bind-off at the top, and pick up the sleeve cuffs to work down toward the wrist. After picking up the button band, you increase stitches for pockets and hold them for later. You work the pockets sideways, out toward the sides, then gather them in at the sides before binding off and seaming. The pockets’ top edges are allowed to roll in toward the pocket.

The result is effortless to wear, exceptionally comfortable, and chic to boot. (It doesn’t hurt that Delirium has a stunning hand. Isn’t it great to be a knitter?!)
