Laura Chau Assam PDF
Assam by Laura Chau is an easygoing yet polished cardigan that’s perfect for hand-dyed or striping yarns. Its side-to-side construction ensures that you’ll end up with flattering vertical lines. An easy fit and faux raglan shaping makes this the perfect throw-on-and-go sweater, but it’s polished enough for work, too. Wide seed stitch bands and three-quarter sleeves top off this classic cardigan. Assam is knit flat in one piece from cuff to cuff, beginning at the left sleeve and proceeding up to the left shoulder, across the left front, back, right front, and then right sleeve down to the cuff. This cardigan doesn’t have buttons, but they can easily be added if desired.
