For those times when the comfort of a soft sweater beckons, Veronik Avery has designed this raglan cardigan in luscious chenille. It is worked in an overall ribbed pattern of single knit stitches against a purl background. The button and buttonhole bands are formed simultaneously with the fronts. A fold-over collar and bell sleeves give the cardigan updated styling. Worked in a yarn appropriately named Touch Me, this sweater feels as good as a hug.
