1537 One-piece Sleeveless Cardigan

"(This) piece is worked sideways, from the left side to the right side," explains Klecki. And it's so brilliant in concept that the side 'seams' consist of casting off live stitches together, so there's really no sewing. And you can wear it anywhere, with anything. It's a vest, a cape, a cardie, a mainstay-- loose and flowing in the spectacular Mulberry Linen (which is 50% alpaca, 25% mulberry silk, and 25% linen; just imagine the drape and hand). Part of the piece is worked on two separate circular needles, though it's all knit flat; you'll see why as you make it. Fascinating architecture, no sizes to keep track of, and wonderful ease both in the knitting and the wearing.
