Berroco Rosalba is knit from the cuffs to the center of the body before being joined in the back with a three-needle bind off. A simple eyelet stitch pattern is worked at the cuffs and front edges of this open-front cardigan. Knit in Berroco Ginkgo, a splendidly soft blend of silk and wool in a worsted weight. A strand of wool and a strand of silk are plied together, then plied again. The dye takes up differently with each fiber, giving this yarn a unique visual texture.
