From Knitscene Fall 2016, this hooded cardigan is an instant favorite designed by the talented Kristen TenDyke. It is worked from the bottom up with a front buttonband flanked by a classic cable pattern that is mirrored up the back. Gorgeous shoulder shaping with raglan seaming will make this your favorite cozy sweater in a heartbeat.

ALTERNATE YARN: Umiña by Mirasol (505 Alpaca / 50% ExtraFine Merino Wool; 100g/247 yds): 5 (5, 6, 6, 7) Skeins.
ALTERNATE YARN: Merino Worsted by Malabrigo (100% Superwash Merino Wool; 100g/210yds): 6 (6, 7, 7, 8) Skeins. Soft to the hand and wonderful to knit. Since the colors can vary from batch to batch, please purchase all yarn at one time and alternate strands to prevent pooling. This yarn does have a slight textural variation (although not as defined as O-Wool) and will create a less tweedy effect in the finished garment.

Try this beautiful pattern in a durable and well loved yarn. Please note that this yarn is not as soft to the hand as the designer recommended yarn. NatureSpun comes in a center pull skein so no balling is required.
