This cardigan is named "Moorie" which means blizzard in the Shetland highlands.  This small motif in this yoke was inspired by the winter night's sky. This slight A-Line cardigan features a high button band and is worked from the bottom up with a small steek at the collar.

This beautiful pattern is presented in Making No. 6: Black & White.  If you have never bought a Making book, please consider purchasing one because it is full of beautiful projects ranging from knitting, crochet, sewing, quilting, felting and cooking!
