Description

Tucci is a bold, geometrically-striped cardigan with a wide fold-over collar – the perfect antidote to chillier, gray days. Tucci combines an easy-to-modify silhouette with sassy stripes and simple (optional) embroidery for a stunner of a cardigan. It’s great for using up small amounts of that knockout yarn, and giving your sweater some interest without going overboard.

Spirit Trail Fiberworks Brigantia is an incredible blend of Polwarth wool and silk. It’s got a lightweight feel, lovely fluidity, great drape, and a gorgeous sheen. When this utterly awesome fabric is combined with the intense, subtly-shaded colors that come out of Jen’s dye-pot, the result is intense and fabulous. I highly recommend it.

Construction:

Tucci is worked in pieces from the bottom up and then seamed. The collar is picked up and knit after seaming. In the traditional pattern, the button bands are worked inline with the front pieces, making for easier finishing.

Optional blanket stitch is used to give the seed stitch edges some colorful interest.
