UKHKA 4 Cardigans
You have a monumentally wonderful DK yarn and are just wondering how best to show it to best advantage. Start here. These are very, very basic cardies, traditionally constructed in pieces, with the front garter bands knitted separately and sewn down on left and right fronts to meet at the back neck. The top two versions, with either a V or crew neck, would suit any kind of 4 ply at all (long-or-short-repeat variegate, tweed, nep, textured, whatever) wonderfully well. The diamond lace-bordered version at bottom would do better in a more solid-coloured, smooth yarn. So this pattern amply earns its keep because any 4 ply will suit it one way or another.
From the publisher: "The main aim of the UK Hand Knitting Association (UKHKA) is to raise the profile of hand knitting. It does this through 'Learn to Knit' classes held throughout the UK, 'Relax and Knit' stands at all the principal UK Knitting and Sewing shows, and by the introduction of National Competitions showcased at the Knitting and Sewing shows." To this end, no specific yarn is recommended-- just choose the appropriate weight of something you like and make sure you meet the gauge requirements.
