9114 Ladies' Cardigan

It's a miracle. Here is a chunky weight yarn used in such a way as to make it look almost like a gossamer DK-- light, airy, fluid. It's the overall twisted-stitch-rib fabric that does it. With the stitches twisted on both sides of the work (not all of them, just the knit stitch columns), you get a remarkably pliant, elastic fabric-- and it also seems to mean that the garment is handknit, since we are not aware of any knitting machines that can produce this effect. Front bands are knitted of a piece with the fronts, so there's no extra finishing to work there-- just as the body fabric obliterates the need for any special edge treatment at the hems. Sleek, warm, gorgeous, not too complicated (the cables are mock cables)-- what more could you want?
