Product details

The Swift River Cardigan is the 3rd installment in Lyrical Knits' Quabbin Series hat is intended to honor the 4 Massachusetts towns that were disincorporated in the 1930s to make way for the Quabbin Reservoir. This cardigan is dedicated to the river itself which still flows through central Massachusetts, and whose waters not only quench the thirst of much of Boston, but are also home to an abundance of wildlife.
Worked from the shoulders-down, the set-in sleeves of the cardigan are created simultaneously with the upper bodice in a technique originally described by Barbara Walker. Make it in a light sportweight yarn for a light, drapey cardi, or in a true dk weight for a more substantial, cozy jacket. The Garter Stitch collar and edging are worked along with the bodice, as are the pockets. One seam is necessary to close the side of the pocket, but the garment is otherwise seamless. The cardigan has gentle A-Line shaping with no waist shaping for a loose, easy fit.
