Foyle's Cardigan by Amy Herzog
Foyle's Cardigan will take you to the grocery store, on a hike, to work, to the library, all while making you feel as though you're surrounded by the heather of a Scottish moor. Knit up in Shetland 1.0, it's the kind of sweater that turns people into sweater people. It wraps you up in woolly comfort, and reminds you of what clothes can do for us when they're made from thoughtful materials and created with care and pride.
Foyle's Cardigan features an allover-patterned front and Stockinette back and sleeves. It sports a comfy deep V neckline, with waist shaping on the back only for the ultimate in casual comfort.
Foyle's Cardigan is an hourglass design, so your final pattern will have waist and bust shaping. You can only use complete measurement sets to create this pattern.
Can I say enough good things about Clara Yarn's Shetland 1.0? I don't think so. It's a naturally-colored Shetland woolen-spun yarn. DK weight, blooms like nobody's business, a sweater yarn to end all sweater yarns.
If you're reading this while it's still available, stop RIGHT NOW and go get some. If you weren't lucky enough to grab some while it existed, I recommend a similar material - a DK-weight, woolen-spun yarn that's lightly heathered and luscious. Swans Island, Harrisville, and Green Mountain Spinnery all make lovely ones.
