737 Becky Cardigan
Penny Straker: “Becky is quintessential knitting comfort! It is sure to be a quick knit in Bulky weight yarns. Yarns that have texture, interest, colorways – wool, blends of sumptuous fibers, tweeds, all work for this design. My original prototype, knit in a short week during the summer of 1981 on Nantucket, was in Bulky Donegal Tweed. Greeted by our customers with great enthusiasm, many knit it, and many more bought more set-ups, just because they knew they would wear it again and again!
“Becky is worked in K1, P1 ribbed cuffs, Stockinette Stitch body and sleeves, and Garter Stitch front bands – a bold vertical line, and easy-to-work, inconspicuous Raglan sleeves. These are the details that comprise this simple cropped design. And it should stay cropped – an integral part of the design.
“The yarn is important and so are the buttons. Choose the yarn first and then have fun seeking out spectacular buttons. Not too small, not too big. They are an important part of the cropped design, knit to almost negative ease. It’s perfect as a top layer with jeans or cords, or just the right short skirt.”
