Product Details

Valley Yarns Kousa is a long cardigan knit in luxurious Hardwick yarn in an allover texture pattern. Hardwick’s blend of alpaca, wool, and silk has a thick and thin structure with a subtle sheen and exceptional warmth and drape. Kousa is a stylish layer that feels like a cozy hug and it will add an elegant touch to any outfit. Cardigan is knit flat in pieces from the bottom up with a three-needle bind-off joining the shoulders and seams at the sides for structure. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole edge and worked down in the round to the cuff. The front band is integrated into the fronts and extensions on each side are grafted together at the back neck before being sewn in place. Texture pattern is both charted and written out.

This pattern is only available as a PDF download.
