Here's what Amy Christoffers says about her design:

"An easy to wear relaxed V-neck cardigan with an allover mosaic pattern. Shown with 6” of positive ease but choose what ever ease suits you. Want it longer? Just keep working the body until its your desired length before the underarm (and be sure to purchase additional yarn).

The body is worked in one piece to the underarm. Fronts and back are divided and worked separately to the shoulders. Shoulders are bound off and sewn but you could opt to work short rows and join with a three needle bind off if you prefer. The sleeves are picked up and worked down in the round.


Bust – (37, 42, 47, 53) (58, 63, 69, 74)“
Length – (20, 20 ½, 21, 21 ½) (22, 22 ½, 23, 23 ½)” down center back
Shown in size 42” with approximately 6” of ease.

Sport weight yarn, approximately (900, 1000, 1100, 1200) (1300, 1400, 1500, 1600) yards Main Color (MC), and (550, 700, 800, 900) (1000, 1100, 1200, 1300) yards Contrast Color (CC)

Yarn amounts are estimates. Total yardage used will depend on the yarn you use, your gauge, and any modifications you may make. If using a sticky, bouncy yarn like an untreated wool choose a fingering, jumper or sport weight. If using a super wash or otherwise smooth, slippery yarn chose a sport or DK.

For best results wash and block your swatch exactly the way you plan to wash your finished sweater. The sweater shown has been washed with a gentle wool wash and gently smoothed into shape to dry flat.
