ARAN-INSPIRED CABLES and borders of Irish moss stitch bring traditional style to this modern, long-length cardigan. It’s knitted without buttons, for a drapey look (fastened here with a chunky wooden pin), while the hood adds a yout hful yet practical touch. It’s a big project, but it’s knitted in Hayfield’s great-value Bonus Aranyarn, making it an inexpensive yet stylish way to keep warm! The wool-acrylic yarn comes in a huge range of classic muted shades and brighter hues.

INSPIRED BY Japanese kimonos, this design by Jeanette Sloan looks like a wrap-around cardigan, but the edges of the left and right fronts are actually stitched in place to prevent them falling open. Jeanette has given her garment an unusual slip-stitch stripe pattern in plum shades. Contrasting panels of lace along the sleeves and back neck use a stitch pattern called Grand Eyelet Lattice. The garment has a lovely sheen, thanks to the luscious Alpaca Silk yarn from Blue Sky Alpacas.
