Meet the ultimate country cardigan, understated and timeless. Softly textured all over in honeycomb stitch with reverse stockinette sleeves, Yoko Hatta’s Field sports a flattering V-neck with a perfectly proportioned shawl collar. The work begins with the deep ribbed hem, and the body is knit flat in one piece without shaping to the armholes. The sleeves are worked in the round inside out, so you can knit rather than purl. You’ll be able to save your attention for the yoke, where sinuous raglan lines and simultaneous neck shaping require different rates of decrease on each portion of the sweater. Stitches are picked up for the ribbed button bands and the collar, which is formed with short rows. The result is a classic you’ll wear forever.
