Bryn Mawr Cardigan

Says Chynoweth: "Close fitting long sleeve cardigan with deep scooped neck, moss stitch trims and collar, princess dart shaping and sleeve slits with crochet edging." Bryn Mawr, for the benefit of our international audience, is one of the most illustrious liberal arts universities in America, founded in 1885. Here Chynoweth presents a uniquely lovely cardi that honours that heritage, as well as looking gorgeously modern. There's waist shaping, and the shoulders are sloped with wrapped short rows, then cast off together. Do read the data page with the notes about how this garment is made in one piece to the armholes, etc., etc.-- there's a lot of fascinating detail there. Chynoweth is a freelance knitwear designer of great renown, and has not stinted on this pattern's detail and explanations. It's wonderful fun to make. But of course in the end, it's all about the look, and you can just imagine the young Katharine Hepburn wearing this. She, incidentally, was Bryn Mawr Class of 1928.
