Helliwell Cardigan

BY MEGAN GOODACRE

A sweet old-fashioned cardigan, Helliwell is worked from the bottom up with a built-in button band and round yoke.  The openwork motif around the yoke beautifully frames the neck and shoulders, while side shaping flatters the figure, and all is edged with simple seed stitch.

Den-M-Nit washes and fades like your favorite pair of blue jeans and will shrink by 10-15% in length when dried in a clothes dryer. If your plan is to machine wash and dry your garment like a pair of jeans, just make a few adjustments to the length dimensions of your knitting – simply add 10-15% more rows for all length dimensions, and then shrink to fit.
