Cymric Cardigan

Part of the Nua Collection Volume 2. Print with digital available here and digital here.

Have fun knitting this cardigan with its unusual construction! Starting at the center of the yoke, each side is worked and then joined in the round to create simultaneous set-in sleeves. The beautiful cables are worked seamlessly from the yoke all the way down to the cuff. The front of the cardigan is finished with a short row brioche shawl collar that can be worn open or pinned closed.
