Hesperus is a sideways-knit cocoon cardigan with triangle panels and inserts, reminiscent of a ship at sail. The shrug is knit from the cuff in towards the center in two pieces, with increases occurring at the top and bottom edges. Increases and decreases shape the triangular garter panel in the fronts.
