Home Base

BY JUTTA VON HINTERM STEIN

Comfortable to knit and comfortable to wear, Home Base is a perfectly timeless every-day cardigan!  Knit seamlessly from the top down, it uses a combination of easy techniques to create a polished result and a refined construction for the shoulders provides a perfect fit.  You can try it on as you go and adapt the design to your needs and preferences (tips are included in the pattern).  Options are included for different body shapes (straight/A-shape/hourglass) as well as hints for adaptions of length and width to create the perfect cardigan for you.  Home Base is available in sizes XS-S-M1-M2-L-XL-XXL and the sample garment shown was knit using a cotton/merino blend.
