Product details

At first glance Metamorphosis Cardigan seen from the front may seem like a simple striped affair, but wait, why do the stripes on the front alternate? The color of one stripe on the left side of the button band lines up with a stripe of the other color on the right. The back reveals all: stripes change color in the center of the back, forming a pretty zig-zag pattern that reminds me of some of the changing patterns in the art work of M.C. Escher. Metamorphosis: an abrupt change, in this case from one color yarn to the next. Knit from the top down in a fingering weight yarn, Metamorphosis Cardigan is seamless and allows for plenty of playing with color.

If you like Metamorphosis Cardigan you might also like [Metamorphosis Shawl][1], which has the same stripe pattern.
