Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 416 – Counterpane Cardigan

Designed by Alice Tang, this ingenious cardigan is composed of squares worked from the center out, that are then joined along their edges. Simple Stockinette and Reverse Stockinette are alternated around each square. Larger squares are used for the body and smaller squares form a cylinder for each sleeve. Once your squares are grafted together, stitches swirl in all directions in this clever design, making each square blend into the next.
