8497 (Brioche) Cardigan (age 10 up)
WEB EXCLUSIVE

This is a unicorn of cardigans, rare and prized and lovely-- a half-brioche (Knit One Below) almost Chanel-style boxy jacket. The K1B row (alternating with a plain knit row) makes the fabric extra-plush and deep and 3-D; essentially the body of the piece is half in a 1 x 1 rib. When you knit this way, the fabric takes longer to grow because the row gauge is condensed. But if you've ever done it, you'll know it's worth it. We don't know that machines can do this, so it looks exotic while remaining utterly classic, too.
