Issue 502 • Sanibel Cardigan
While cozy pullovers are great for cooler temperatures, a good cardigan is my preferred sweater style for warm weather. This week's pattern in Sanibel has a rib and cable border with a subtly scalloped edge, adding interest and femininity to an otherwise plain V-neck cardigan. Extremely soft for wearing next to the skin, Sanibel's gentle shimmer makes it the ideal yarn for adding a little glamour to your summer knitting.

Sanibel is our fashion yarn: understated, feminine and chic, with a touch of glitz that makes a statement for both daytime and evening wear. The drape is alluring, the hand soft, and the palette sophisticated. Sanibel is perfect for those who want a little excitement in their stash.
