Description
By combining two multicolored yarns, a smooth alpaca-wool blend and a fluffy mohair-viscose-polyester blend, Norah Gaughan was able to create an alluring impressionistic color effect in a simple stockinette-stitch cardigan. By working the yarns at a large gauge, she kept the garment lightweight and quick to knit. A few unexpected details: wide ribbing at the lower body and sleeve edges, a wide neck, and large buttons lend this sweater modern appeal.
