The Fibre Co. A-Line Cardigan PDF
A-Line Cardigan from The Fibre Co. is worked from the bottom up in one piece, with a beautiful double moss stitch border. The sweep of the cardigan is due to the insertion of a triangular detail at the back of the garment, adding interest without complication and creating a flattering A-line shape. The cardigan has raglan shaping and the sleeves are worked flat before seaming for stability. Knit in The Fibre Co. Canopy Fingering, a unique blend of alpaca, Merino wool and bamboo viscose fibers that are spun into a smooth yarn and then kettle dyed. The way the various fibers absorb the dye differently creates a beautiful depth of color with subtle heathered tones.
