women's cardigan 96 - riley

 

 
 

woman_sweater_riley



This attractive cardigan was inspired by a design from Ralph Lauren’s runway collection. It was knit in cashmere; priced at $1,550. The sample is knit it in a Plymouth Company Yarn; beautiful and luxurious Arequipa Worsted. The composition is 90% superwash merino wool and 10% mulberry silk.
The fit is classic with slightly dropped shoulders for a relaxed look. The faced shawl collar starts high. It is embellished with an appealing leather trim closure and information where to purchase the trim. Vertical buttonholes on sweater and facing is an interesting technique to work. 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
