Short Description: The Wildmere Cardigan has an unusual construction that makes this pattern very entertaining to knit. The sweater is worked in every which direction; bottom-up, top-down, sideways and diagonally, for an almost entirely seamless garment. This long elegant cardigan has a contemporary silhouette with a modified dolman sleeve and features an open front with a generous draped full length collar, diagonally knitted arms with a raised seam-stitch running from shoulder-top to wrist, and a variety of textures throughout. Flattering for curvy and straight figures alike, the optional hip shaping makes this garment easy to fit to your body type.
Gauge: 16.25 sts and 26 rows = 4” in St st and seed st with smaller needles, after blocking.
