Several of our La Plata ladies are in love with a classic sweater by Sally Melville from her book, The Purl Stitch called the Simple Cardigan. I know, not a glamorous or exciting name, but like everything in Sally Melville’s books, it is exactly the kind of thing you want in your wardrobe. Very wearable and comfortable, it’s a garment that fits into your life and makes you wonder what you ever wore before you knit it. Here it is blue.
This sweater’s simple styling is enhanced by a beautiful pattern stitch that’s easy to do and makes a wonderfully plushy fabric. Lynne swatched the pattern (actually the entire left front in miniature), in gorgeous Aurora 8.
The fabric is so beautiful and plushy, it made me remember why this is one of my favorite yarns. I love the way the twist of this yarn makes even plain stockinette look interesting.
