The Darlene Cardigan with a jacket-like sophistication, is a labor of love in a fingering weight yarn, for the serious knitter and sweater wearer. You’ll appreciate the lightweight layer, minimal lines and cozy collar. Worked in reverse stockinette with a slipped edging, with cute tiny buttons and a shawl collar pulling it all together.
Sweater is worked in reverse stockinette in pieces bottom up; back, fronts, sleeves. Selvedge stitches are worked throughout to aid in seaming, a slipped edge is worked along the fronts and collar. Buttonholes are worked into the front, collar is worked with the front and continued across the back neck. Blocking and steam pressing are used to flatten the slip st “icord” edges
