Take a closer look!

Hakone is an understated, wearable cardigan that brings a little bit of luxury into our daily lives. The sample is worked in a beautiful fingering blend of wool, cashmere, and silk; it matches the design beautifully and the sweater is both polished enough to wear for special occasions and soft enough to wear every day.

The 3/4 notched sleeves and tailored shaping nicely counterpoint the more casual worn-open style and make the sweater incredibly versatile: It can be dressed up or down, works when worn with both close and more relaxed fits, and is a great choice for any season.

For stability, I recommend working Hakone from the bottom up in pieces, and then seaming. It is mostly Stockinette, and trimmed in 3x2 ribbing; the sleeves are worked in two pieces which are then joined to form the notches. The neckline is picked up and worked in 3x2 ribbing after seaming.

I used Spirit Trail Fiberworks’ delicious Sunna yarn for this sweater. The wool/cashmere/silk blend is lightweight but warm, and has both a lustrous glow (from the silk) and a terrific bloom (from the cashmere). It elevates the sweater into an incredible daily hug that you can’t wait to put on.
