“One of the magical things about hand knitting is the formation of the fabric at the same time as the creation of the piece. And because of this, the seamless yoked cardigan is something of a magic trick. A long-time favorite among knitters, I wanted to give this traditional silhouette a modern twist with an updated ribbing, but keep some tradition by using nupps. I hope this finds its way into your Fall wardrobe.” – Michele Wang
