It's getting a little chillier and while the nights are drawing in, the daytime isn't quite so chilly that we need thick woollens (yet). So in the meantime, that means lighter weight garments take front row in our daily wardrobe and just in time, Carol Feller has published this great cardigan design.
Autumn Whispers is knit from the top down using the contiguous method of shoulder shaping, this cardigan is lightweight and elegant. Knit with Vivacious 4 ply which is our High twist superwash 100% merino wool yarn, this cardigan can be knit with from either a short or ¾ length sleeve to create a look just for you.
Carol worked this sample up in the 'Copper Tones' colourway which is perfect Autumn colours. The Vivacious 4 ply is ideally suited for these fine structured knits as Merino is a naturally strong yet soft fibre next to the skin and has a beautiful hand across the fabric. Merino has the natural characteristic of working up into a breathable fabric for those last rays of summer that suddenly make an office hot and stuffy but can also warm and insulate for the crisp autumnal mornings.
Autumn Whispers is available in multiple sizes starting from 16"(finished back width at bust) through to 27.75” and the smallest, short sleeve size only takes 2 skeins of Vivacious 4 ply. So grab your yarn here, a copy of the pattern and get knitting as we think this simple but satisfying knit will work up really fast to give you a garment ready to wear this Autumn.
