032 Perpetual Bliss Cardigan

Everyone needs a warm cardigan. This one is made of soft, light sportweight alpaca. Sinuous Bavarian twisted-stitch patterns lend interest to cuffs and front while remaining simple enough that they are not obscured by the yarn’s halo. The body and sleeves are worked in 1x1 ribbing for a silhouette that gives stretchiness to the alpaca yarn and skims your curves without revealing too much. Waist shaping is included in the pattern, but it may be omitted by the knitter if desired. Options are provided for button and snap closures. The twisted-stitch motif used for the button band makes spacing easy, so no calculations are required. Applied I-cord along fronts and cuffs prevents edges from rolling.

The sweater is knit in pieces from the bottom up, then seamed. Attached I-cord is worked around the neck after seaming.
