Endpapers Cardigan by Joan Forgione
What could be better than a cozy cardi in a super soft yarn?
That’s exactly what we thought when we saw this beautiful new design by Joan Forgione. Slightly oversized with a splash of colour at the hem and cuffs, Endpapers combines style and comfort in this open-front, top-down cardigan. The colourwork pattern is a slip-stitch pattern, a technique in which only one colour is worked in each row. It’s a perfect way to get started in colourwork without stranding.
The cardigan is worked in one piece from the top down. Once the yoke is complete, sleeve stitches are put on waste yarn and the body is worked flat to the bottom hem. Sleeves are then worked in the round. Stitches for the front band are picked up and knit. The slip-stitch pattern is both written and charted for your convenience.
The yarns used in the cardigan pictured above is shown in Bare Necessities – 9806 (MC) & Unexpected Macaw – 9804 (CC). If you need to cast on right away, you can find this wonderful pattern on Ravelry here and you can also nab yourself a yarn kit over on stolenstitches.com too.
