NHK40-6 Twists and Textures Cardigan

Once you've acquired a certain dexterity and a little experience, you wonder: can I do something quite involved, that other knitters would consider 'hard'? Of course you can. And a great place to start would be this gorgeous little summer cardi. "The lower body is worked back and forth in rows in one piece using a circular needle to accommodate the number of stitches," says Bunn. "At the base of the armholes, the body is divided for working the Back and Fronts separately." Which means that you don't have to worry about the silhouette too much-- just the glory of the complex stitching, limited but stunning. From Nashua Handknits Book 40, Creative Focus Cotton.
