At home in the beautiful Welsh countryside, the designer is never at a loss for inspiration. This cardigan combines blocks of textured woodsy colors with blocks of her signature floral intarsia motifs. Each piece is worked back and forth from the lower edge upward. The fronts feature optional slit pockets and frontbands that are picked up and worked sideways. The neckband, cuffs, and lower edge are all worked in seed stitch. Because the pattern repeat is so large, only one size is given for this sweater. It can be made somewhat larger or smaller by going up or down in needle size.
