Product Details

Shandy from Baby Cocktails is a dainty women’s cardigan with a beautiful cable and scallop detail designed to showcase a delicate heather or wool fiber. The balance of simple scallops next to bold braids makes a gorgeous texture that manages to both standout and remains subtle at the same time. Shandy is designed with a cropped silhouette and an easy fit for layering. The sweater is knit flat in one piece from the bottom to the armholes. Once shoulders are seamed, sleeve stitches are picked around the armholes, shaped with short rows, then knit in the round to the cuffs. Button and neck bands are added last. The cable patterns are charted and written out.

You want a light worsted or heavy DK yarn for this one. And I do love how the detail looks in a slightly rustic wool.
