Water St. Cardigan

The small city of Peterborough, Ontario, is where I spent my years as an undergraduate student. It is a town far enough away from the bright lights of Toronto to have its own eclectic identity; big enough for you to find what you need and small enough to not be intimidating.

When I returned a decade later for a year-long stint as a teaching Professor, I was pleased to discover that a yarn shop (Needles in the Hay) had opened downtown on Water Street. I spent many enjoyable afternoons knitting there, and made several wonderful friends amongst the knitters in town.

The Water Street cardigan is simple to knit and effortless to wear. Sleeves and body are each worked separately and then joined for a raglan yoke, with garter ridges added for extra texture at cuffs and upper torso. Worked with Tanis Fiber Arts Purple Label Cashmere Sock (or your preferred heavy fingering weight/sport weight wool or wool-cashmere blend yarn) at a loose gauge of 5 sts/inch, this cardi is perfect for transitional times of year, or any time you need light knitted comfort.

(And, we'd like to add, "cozy comfort" with wide collar extensions that are joined with kitchener stitch at the back of the neck. That and a bit of underarm grafting is all the sewing involved. We don't think that really counts!--ed.)

The Water St. Cardigan is one of eight patterns in the Urban Collection.
