PetiteKnit - Sunday Cardigan
The Sunday Cardigan is knit from the top down with one strand of Inca Wool and two strands of silk mohair held together throughout the work. The yoke is knit back and forth in rib and shaped with increases.
The button bands are knit simultaneously with the rest of the cardigan, so you do not have to pick up stitches at the end.
The body and sleeves are knit in stockinette stitch and are finished with a wide rib edge. The sleeves are extra-long.
The neckband is folded in and sewn to the wrong side. The button holes are constructed at the end by widening up a hole in the knit fabric (and are thus not worked as you knit the button band); they are secured and shaped by sewing along the edges of the button holes with buttonhole stitches (sewing).
There are lots of beautiful variations you can knit in yarns for this in combinations of wool held with a strand or two of silk mohair, as long as you get gauge.
