“This textured shawl collared cardigan worked in Shelter is a warm and cozy Sunday morning kind of sweater. It’s worked from the bottom up with an uneven hem and 3/4 set in sleeves, and the fronts and back are started separately but joined and worked in one piece to the underarms. The hems and sleeve cuffs are worked in 1×1 rib; the hem edges and front bands are worked in narrow garter stitch. The textured stitch patterns were chosen for their reversibility, and the collar can be worn up or folded.” – Amy Christoffers
