The Hood River Cardigan is a quick knit that will chase away the chill on the trail and is perfect for keeping cozy while it storms outside. This marled cardigan reminiscent of a sock monkey is easy to make in worsted weight Woolstok.  Simply hold 2 different colors together and knit to make the lovely tweedy cardigan.  This pattern includes raglan shaping at the shoulders.

Piece is worked back and forth without joining; a circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.  When working sleeves, change to double pointed needles when stitches no longer fit comfortably on circular needle.

Kit includes pattern and selected yarn. For Ball Winding services click here.  Sizes with similar skein counts have been combined for kit purposes only.  Pattern includes 9 individual sizes.
