From Knit.Wear Spring/Summer 2018, the Clematis Cardigan is a cleverly simple and elegant design. It has a clean silhouette that features an allover cable pattern that looks complicated but that only requires a few steps. The yarn, Balance by O-Wool, is an all season blend of organic merino & organic Texas cotton that creates a balanced warmth & breathable garment. The cardigan is worked back and forth in separate pieces and seamed, and the front twisted rib bands are picked up and knit after the sweater is assembled.
