Each Delish Cardigan requires 4 to 8 skeins of Hand Maiden Lady Godiva, depending on size.
Lady Godiva: 50% wool/50% silk; 250m/100g; 273yds/3.5oz
Gauge: 20 stitches and 28 rows = 4 inches in Sand Stitch
Suggested Needles: US 7/4.5mm and US 8/5mm

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.
