“Welcome to Jurisfiction,” said the Cheshire Cat. “You’ll like it here, everyone is quite mad.” -Lost in a Good Book, by Jasper Fforde *
Literary heroine Thursday Next has a lot on her plate: As an agent specializing in literary crimes, she might be found tracking down forged Shakespeare folios, standing in as a ‘Jurisfiction’ agent apprehending criminals inside the literary world, or even grappling with the occasional bit of time travel. If anyone needs a knitted cardigan with cozy, twisty-turny, show-off cables, it’s Ms. Next.
The Jurisfiction cardi is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up and later seamed, and finished with a button-band and folded over collar. Worked in your favourite colour of Cascade 220 or 220 Heathers (or your preferred worsted weight wool), this cardigan is a comfortable and versatile staple for your fall and winter wardrobe.
