This stunning basketweave cardigan is wonderful for layering, either every day or for special occasions. The beautiful edging is made by many, many, cast-ons and cast-offs, which should also fill that hunger for a new project right when you've nearly finished the one you've got.
Originally knitted in the King Cole Shine DK, a self-striping acrylic with a complementary metallic thread running through it, giving it a gorgeous sparkle. While sparkly yarns do have a reputation as being scratchy, nothing could be further from the truth with this wonderfully soft, silky yarn that is lovely to have next to the skin. An alternative without this metallic thread would be the acrylic/cotton/wool blend King Cole Drifter DK, a self-striping yarn in a vast variety of colours.
Knitted on 3.75 and 4mm Straight Needles.
