This lovely cardigan can be found in Knitscene Fall 2017 by the talented Bonnie Sennott. Detailed with a lozenge stitch around cuff and collar, this warm cardigan has a bit of shine from silk. For a tweedy garment with a bit of texture, try Fibre Company Acadia!
The body of this cardigan is worked back and forth in one piece from the lower edge to the underarm, then the upper fronts and back are worked separately. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armhole and the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down with short-rows to shape the sleeve cap
