This design was another collaboration with The Plucky Knitter! It’s an updated version of the shawl collared cardigans from the 1940s/50s worn by male movie stars or a favorite grandpa.  New and interesting cables, a fit that skims your curves and ends where your jeans start, and a gorgeous variegated yarn add a little twist to the original.  Available in 12 sizes (kits are grouped by number of skeins, but you will be able to choose any size in the grouping).

Kit includes pattern, selected yarn & 3 buttons (please send your selection via "Notes" at checkout or email after purchase.  Kit Pricing does not include 0728H44).  For Ball Winding services click here.  

 Worsted Weight

DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Worsted Merino by Plucky Knitter (100% Merino; 100g/215yds): 6 (7, 8) (8, 9, 10) Skein.  This yarn is discontinued.  Please select from the following.

ALTERNATE YARN: Merino Worsted by Malabrigo (100% Merino Wool; 100g/210yds): 6 (7, 8) (8, 9, 10)  Skeins.  This yarn is a great match for the Plucky Knitter Worsted Merino.  It has the same lovely variegation, single ply and is kettle-dyed in small batches so that it will have a wonderful depth, even in darker colors.

ALTERNATE YARN: Rios by Malabrigo (100% Superwash Merino Wool; 100g/210yds): 6 (7, 8) (8, 9, 10) Skeins.  Rios is a multi plied yarn with a tight twist that will knit up less densely than Merino Worsted but with all of the softness and delicate hand of merino wool.  This yarn will be less likely to pill in high abrasion areas as well.
