The sewn on feathers and palettes add glamour to Marcella, a classic Scandinavian ski cardigan, inspired by an Italian runway show. It looks great when worn in town or at the ski slopes.
The lower body and yoke are worked back and forth on forty inch circular needles. The sleeves are worked in the round on double-pointed needles. The lower body and the sleeves are joined to knit the Fair Isle yoke. The easy to follow pattern includes:

    •    Schematic for each piece
    •    A helpful tracking sheet
    •    Diagrams and full explanations for techniques
    •    A link for substitute yarn
    •    A pattern helpline
