9021 Cardigans

Commandments of summer knitting patterns include: "Thou shalt not be too complicated", "Thou shalt not take forever to knit", and "Thou shalt make the wearer look amazing". In this lovely airy cardi design, all of these are met. The fagoting stitch looks involved, and it's true that there's some lacy action on both the RS and WS. However, there are only 2 rows to the pattern and it's easy to memorize. There's just enough st st (in columns) to anchor the piece and give it stability in addition to its flow. There's a little waist shaping, too, just for extra flirt. Finishing is minimal, and you just use one of the lacy holes for the button.

Just Bamboo is no longer available, but was 95m/104y, 100% bamboo in a ribbon/tape format, 19 sts and 25 rows to 4"/10cm on a 5.5mm/US9 needle in st st. There was lots of drape to this yarn!
