Cape Cod Cardigan

  I was asked by Frog Tree yarns to design a cardigan using their newest yarn, Pediworsted yarn.  It's the worsted version of Pediboo.  They only had one color available but I love the natural colors so that wasn't an issue.  This cardigan begins with a blackberry/brambleberry stitch and graduates to an alternate slipped stitch.  Fun thing about the cardigan is the right side is purled throughout and the wrong side is where the stitch pattern is actually created.  It's a heavy sweater, ideal for crisp days.  There are several options for the front band, one being that the buttons are a tad off set.  Tabs like on the back could also be used with the buttons. 

 The back has a row of decreases where the tab is to cinch up the sweater for a nice drape. 
Pattern available March
