This cardigan, meant to be worn open, is constructed in pieces from the bottom up with set-in sleeves. The body and sleeves are worked with a faced hem. The neckline is picked up and worked flat after seaming; it is encouraged to roll.

Handmaiden Yarns’ Lady Godiva is an absolutely scrumptious, lightweight blend of wool and silk. It produces a fabric that hangs away from the body, softly outlining curves, instead of clinging tightly. If you’d like to substitute a yarn, I recommend something with a similar fiber content. A similar yarn with a smaller pricetag (but same gauge) is Fleece Artist’s Woolie Silk.
