Bright, cheerful stripes are the perfect antidote to chillier days. Tucci combines an easy-to-modify silhouette with sassy stripes and simple (optional) embroidery for a stunner of a cardigan that’s perfect for all kinds of weather. It’s great for using up small amounts of that knockout yarn, and giving your sweater some interest without going overboard. It’s constructed in pieces from the bottom up, then seamed. The collar is picked up and knit after seaming. Button bands are worked inline with the front pieces, making for easier finishing. Optional blanket stitch is used to give the seed stitch edges some colorful interest, and the stripes are placed on the collar and sleeves for visual balance and easy modification options. Spirit Trail Fiberworks Brigantia is an incredible blend of Polwarth wool and silk. It’s got a lightweight feel, lovely fluidity, great drape, and a gorgeous sheen. When this utterly awesome fabric is combined with the intense, subtly-shaded colors that come out of Jen’s dye-pot, the result is intense and fabulous. I highly recommend it.
